Introduction to TOEFL iBT

TOEFL is an English examination that tests your knowledge of academic English in four key areas: reading, listening, writing and speaking. Vocabulary and grammar knowledge are also tested, but indirectly. 
Image of TOEFL logo The TOEFL test is designed and administered by ETS, Educational Testing Services, an American company based in New Jersey. ETS also administers other common tests like TOEIC.
The maximum score in the TOEFL test is 120. A good score is above 90 points, and a great score is more than 100 points. At Higher Score® at EC, it is our goal to help every student achieve a score of 90 points or above.

What to Expect If You Take TOEFL

TOEFL is a very challenging examination, and unfortunately, many students find it hard to achieve the score they need. One reason for this is that the English level of TOEFL is high, because it is an academic exam. The other reason is that TOEFL questions challenge students in a very logical manner. Many students are not comfortable with this type of thinking, which can make the test very challenging. The good news is that we at Higher Score® at EC can help you learn this type of thinking, which will give you a big advantage during the test and help you after you enter university.
This table summarizes the different sections of the test:
