Notes about TOEFL iBT:
Who Accepts TOEFL Scores?
More than 5,000 colleges, universities, and licensing agencies in 90 countries accept TOEFL scores. Certain colleges or universities may require you to obtain a particular score of TOEFL if your first language is not English, in order for you to be admitted. However, a high TOEFL score guarantees neither admission into the institutes of your choice nor academic success.
Who Should Take the TOEFL Test?
Non-native English speakers at the 11th-grade level or above should take the TOEFL test to provide evidence of their English proficiency before beginning academic work. The test content is considered too difficult for students below 11th grade.
Where/When Can I Take It?
TOEFL iBT is taken via the Internet at ETS-certified test centers. Most areas where the TOEFL iBT test is offered will have 30 to 40 administrations a year, but the number will vary based on the number of test takers and test center capacity.
