Princeton, N.J. (October 4, 2012) —

As students begin to prepare their admissions applications for the 2013 academic year, Educational Testing Service (ETS) has added two additional TOEFL® test administrations in India for November 25 and December 15, 2012.

The TOEFL test, the most widely accepted English-language assessment worldwide, measures an individual’s ability to use and understand English at the university level and assesses how a student combines the reading, listening, writing and speaking skills needed to succeed in an academic setting. Currently, more than 8,500 institutions in more than 130 countries accept TOEFL scores, including nearly every college and university in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United States.

“ETS is committed to ensuring every student throughout India has the opportunity to take the TOEFL test,” commented David Hunt, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of ETS’s Global Division. “We will continue to monitor capacity and will add additional testing administrations when necessary to accommodate the needs of Indian learners.”

Registration for the TOEFL test is available at Test takers have the opportunity to register for the TOEFL test up to three months in advance. Students are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible as seats can fill up quickly. More information, including free sample test questions and helpful study resources, is available at
