You only take that if you plan to study in American/european universities, and if English isnt your primary language.


So..anyone took it? if so, how did you score?

You also have to take it if you were not born in the US. A friend of mine was asked to take the TOEFL after he graduated from High School, even though he had lived all his life in the US and spoke a perfect English.

BTW, isn't the computer TOEFL test based on a 300 scale?

Yes, the computer-based testing scores are different..you use a score table (provided by ETS, the toefl people), to compare your results to the older paper-based testing system..

I got 277.. which is 647 in paper-based testing terms.

I don't think so.I paid 45 KDs, thats around 160 US Dollars, just to take this test, and to get the score report.

There are some software simulations which use the same basic engine of the real TOEFL test.They're also not free :confused:

I guess my score is $160 if that's what it takes to take the test cause it's $160 I still got.
