About the exam

The TOEFL iBT test is offered 30–40 times a year. Most test takers take the internet-based test.TOEFL is recognised by more than 7,500 colleges, universities and international employers.

Performing well on the iBT TOEFL will enable you to show that you have developed the English skills that you will use in a real academic context. For example, the test may involve you reading some text or listening to a lecture and speaking or writing about what you have read or heard in the same way you would in a class situation.

The test is composed entirely of academic questions and tasks. That is why many universities regard the TOEFL as the best way of evaluating your English when deciding whether to admit you to their school.
