New in TOEFL


ETS recently released the following new updates for the TOEFL exam 2023. 


  • TOEFL iBT duration has been shortened. Starting July 26th, test takers can complete the exam in 2 hours. The exam will also include a new test format. 
  • TOEFL iBT fee has now increased to ₹16,900. 
  • TOEFL iBT will be accepted for Canada SDS starting August 10th.
  • Australia has temporarily stopped accepting TOEFL iBT for visas from July 26, 2023.

The TOEFL, or Test of English as a Foreign Language, is a widely recognised English proficiency test for non-native English speakers.

The TOEFL exam is highly regarded and accepted by universities, colleges, and institutions in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, and others.


The TOEFL exam evaluates your English proficiency in four key areas: 


  • Reading
  • Listening
  • Speaking
  • Writing

These sections are designed to measure your ability to comprehend written and spoken English, as well as your ability to communicate and express yourself in English effectively.


There are two types of TOEFL exams. The main version of TOEFL tests your English academically and is offered in two variants: 


  • Internet-based (iBT ) 
  • Paper-based (PBT)


TOEFL iBT is the most popular version and is available throughout the year. TOEFL iBT also has an at-home edition called TOEFL Essentials, meaning the test can be taken from the comfort of your home. The paper-based version is largely discontinued and is available only in a few locations. 

The TOEFL Essentials tests your everyday English. TOEFL Essentials is much shorter than TOEFL iBT. 


TOEFL scores are released within 4-8 from the test date. 

The cost of the TOEFL IBT exam in India for 2023 is ₹16,900. TOEFL Essentials, on the other hand, costs ₹9,851

TOEFL awards a score of 0-30 for all four sections based on your proficiency. You also get an overall score of 0-120 based on the individual scores.

The scoring system of TOEFL is plain and simple: For every right answer, you score a point. There is no negative marking for wrong answers.

How is TOEFL Scored?


TOEFL uses a combination of AI and Certified human evaluators to carefully assesses your Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening skills. The use of AI enables faster result generation and can produce an unbiased result. But human evaluators are necessary as they can better evaluate the creativity in your ideas and your general communication skills. 


TOEFL Score Validity


TOEFL is valid for two years from the date of the result. If you wish to use your TOEFL scores, you must do it in this timeframe. After two years, your TOEFL scores will be considered invalid. The validity of TOEFL scores is created to ensure that your language skills are up-to-date. 


Combining your scores: TOEFL MyBest™ scores


TOEFL MyBest scores are also known as TOEFL superscores. If you have attempted TOEFL multiple times, you can combine your highest scores from all the tests you have taken to show your overall performance. 

You can find your TOEFL MyBest scores on your TOEFL iBT score report.


Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How long are TOEFL scores valid?

A. TOEFL scores are typically valid for two years from the test date. After the expiration date, the scores are no longer considered official, and you may need to retake the exam if your scores have expired.

Q. Is getting 110 in TOEFL easy?

A. Scoring 110 in TOEFL seems impossible but can be achieved with the right preparation strategies. Plan your exam, and opt for extra coaching if required.
