About the TOEFL and GRE Tests

For nearly 50 years, the TOEFL test has been the most widely accepted English-language assessment in the world, recognized by more than 8,500 colleges, universities and agencies in more than 130 countries. Globally, the TOEFL test is available at more than 4,500 testing sites in more than 165 countries. To date, more than 27 million students around the world have taken the TOEFL test.

Students can take the TOEFL test in half a day, eliminating the need for a second day of testing and additional travel and lodging expenses.

GRE® test scores provide graduate and business schools around the world with an objective and common measure for evaluating and comparing the qualifications of applicants with differing educational and cultural backgrounds. For more than 60 years, GRE scores have been used by admissions and fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate records, including grades and recommendations, and other qualifications for graduate-level study. The GRE® revised General Test measures the skills that graduate and business schools value: verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing — skills that are not limited to any specific field of study, but are important for all. Used by thousands of graduate and business schools around the world, the test is available at about 700 ETS-authorized test centers in more than 160 countries.
