Get Instant Scores for Reading & Listening!

Feb 13, 2020

When you take a test, you want to get your results fast! That's why the TOEFL iBT® test has introduced instant scoring. You can now view unofficial scores for the Reading and Listening sections on screen immediately upon completing the test. These scores can give you an early indication of your performance and help you make a well-informed decision about reporting your scores before leaving the test center.

With this exclusive new enhancement, the TOEFL iBT test becomes the only English-language assessment that gives you the ability to view scores after completing the test. And with our recently accelerated score turnaround time, you will receive your complete official score reports in approximately 6 days.

These features are part of our commitment to bringing you a better overall test experience from start to finish. In addition to instant score access, the TOEFL test has made online registration more convenient than ever. Students can now register online for an upcoming test date just 2 days before a test, formerly 4 days. This can help you face unexpected circumstances or deadlines with greater ease and flexibility. Of course, it's beneficial to register early if you can.

When you choose the higher-standard TOEFL iBT test, you also will enjoy these recently added benefits:

  • TOEFL Official® App – Manage all TOEFL activities, including viewing your scores, from a mobile device. Available for Apple and Android.
  • Reduced Retest Wait Time – The required wait time between tests is now only 3 days (from 12).
  • Afternoon Test Times – Increased test-center capacity with new afternoon sessions for test-taking convenience.
  • Shorter Test – Test time is reduced by 30 minutes, to just 3 hours, with no changes to the overall format.
