A Better Test Experience from Start to Finish

When you choose the TOEFL iBT® test, you're choosing the only test that measures academic English skills in the way they're actually used in a classroom. But you're also getting a better test experience designed to help you succeed.

Here are some of the enhancements we’ve put in place to offer you the best English-language test and testing experience possible:

  • More Opportunities to Register. The mandatory wait time between tests is just 3 days, and you can register online up to 2 days before your test.
  • Free Practice Test. Prepare for test day with a full-length test, as part of the complete line of official test prep from the maker of the test.
  • Shorter Test. The test is 30 minutes shorter, so you can finish the 3-hour test with no need to return for a second day
  • Instant Scores. View your unofficial Reading and Listening scores at the end of your test before you leave the test center.
  • Faster Official Scores. Receive your full, official scores just 6 days after your test.
  • MyBest Scores. Show your best overall test performance with MyBest scores, the combination of your best section scores from the past 2 years.
  • Fair and Unbiased Scoring. All tests are marked centrally using a combination of AI and human scoring.
