    What is TOEFL?

    TOEFL, Test of English as a Foreign Language, measures the English language skills of non-native English speakers who wish to enroll in undergraduate/graduate programmes in English-speaking universities. 

    Why Should Study Abroad Aspirants Take the TOEFL?

    The English-speaking universities seek to assess the English language skills of the applicants to determine if they will be able to successfully complete a program taught in English. Over 10,000 universities and institutions in around 150 countries, including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, and throughout Europe and Asia, accept TOEFL scores for this purpose. Therefore, a good TOEFL score increases your chances of getting an admit from your desired university.

    What is an Ideal TOEFL Score?

    TOEFL doesn't pass or fail you, so what is a good TOEFL score depends on which university and program you're applying for. Some colleges settle for scores close to 100, and you should get at least 80 points to get admitted into good graduate schools. Usually, TOEFL acts as a cutoff instead of a selector. A score in the range of 24-30 is good for the writing section. Scores in the ranges of 22-30 and 26-30 are considered to be fair enough for the reading or listening sections and the speaking section respectively.


    Scoring well in TOEFL is not a menial task, but be assured that if you follow the aforementioned preparation tips for TOEFL and are consistent with your preparations, nothing can stop you from achieving your target score.
