  • Timing
    The ‘TOEFL reading’ section lasts between 60 and 100 minutes. It consists of 3 or 5 exercises. The 1st exercise lasts 20 minutes. The 2nd and 3rd exercises, as well as the 4th and 5th exercises are combined and last 40 minutes. The ‘TOEFL listening’ section lasts between 60 and 90 minutes. It usually consists of 6 exercises but you may be asked to do 9 exercises on the test day. Each exercise lasts around 10 minutes. The whole section will therefore last one hour (with 6 exercises) or one hour and a half (with 9 exercises). Tip 1: Even though you perfectly know that you will only be marked on 3 exercises for the ‘reading’ section and 6 exercises for the ‘listening’ section, you really must stay focused throughout the test if you are asked to perform more exercises. As already mentioned, you cannot know beforehand which exercises will actually be marked. Tip 2: You can see that before your break, the first part of the test (‘reading’ and ‘listening’ sections) can last 3 hours — remember to go to the bathroom beforehand! The exam requires constant focus. It is therefore crucial to practise under real conditions, without any break, for a long time. Indeed, we noted that many students were eventually disappointed by their scores at the ‘reading’ and ‘listening’ sections while these are usually the sections where students feel most confident. The main reason for this is the lack of focus over time and the careless mistakes that can happen. 10-minute break outside the exam room. After the break, you will be tested in the ‘speaking’ section, which is greatly dreaded but in fact not so dreadful. This section lasts about 20 minutes. It consists of 6 exercises for which you will have to speak for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Finally, you will finish the test with the ‘writing’ section that lasts 50 minutes. It is composed of 2 writing exercises, respectively 20 minutes and 30 minutes.
  • TOEFL Score
    Each of the 4 sections is marked out of 30, or one fourth of the overall mark: 120. In addition to your scores, your test taker report will include performance feedback. This provides a description of the kinds of tasks that test takers within the reported score range can do. Tip 1: Universities often demand minimum scores in certain sections, often the speaking section. For instance, to apply for prestigious universities in the UK, you need a minimum score of 22 in the speaking section. These requirements are rare but it is important to check with the universities you wish to apply for before preparing for the TOEFL test. Tip 2: If you are not required to get a minimum mark, you can set yourself very different targets for each section. If you need to reach 100 marks, you can get 25 in each section, but also 27 in reading and listening and 23 in speaking and writing. Set yourself a target in terms of marks and develop a training strategy for each section to reach your overall target. More generally, it is crucial to define a good preparation method in order to crack the TOEFL.
