About the TOEFL iBT® Test
The TOEFL iBT® test, administered via the Internet, is an important part of your journey to study in an English-speaking country. In addition to the test, the ETS TOEFL Program provides tools and guides to help you prepare for the test and improve your English-language skills.

What Is the TOEFL iBT Test?
The TOEFL iBT test measures your ability to use and understand English at the university level. And it evaluates how well you combine your listening, reading, speaking and writing skills to perform academic tasks.
There are two formats for the TOEFL test. The format you take depends on the location of your test center. Most test takers take the TOEFL iBT test. Test centers that do not have Internet access offer the Paper-based Test (PBT).

Who Takes the TOEFL iBT Test?
Each year, nearly a million individuals of all ages take the TOEFL test to demonstrate their English-language proficiency. More than 25 million people from all over the world have taken the TOEFL test since it was first offered. The average English skill level ranges between Intermediate and Advanced.
• Students planning to study at a higher education institution
• English-language learning program admissions and exit
• Scholarship and certification candidates
• English-language learners who want to track their progress
• Students and workers applying for visas

Who Accepts TOEFL iBT Test Scores?
More than 8,000 colleges, agencies and other institutions in over 130 countries accept TOEFL scores. Other organizations rely on TOEFL scores as well:
• Immigration departments use them to issue residential and work visas
• Medical and licensing agencies use them for professional certification purposes
• Individuals use them to measure their progress in learning English.
Where and When Can I Take the TOEFL iBT Test?
The TOEFL test has more test dates (30–40) and locations (4,500 test centers in 165 countries) than any other English-language test in the world. You can retake the test as many times as you wish.

NEW GRE

For Testing On or After August 1, 2011
All about New GRE, GRE preparation tips, New GRE to Old GRE score conversion charts

Just like the GRE® General Test, the GRE® revised General Test measures the verbal and quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills you'll need for success in graduate and business school. 

What to expect with the New GRE revised General Test:
1. A new test-taker friendly design for the computer-based test that lets you edit or change your answers and skip questions, all within a section, and more — giving you the freedom to use more of your own test-taking strategies.

Here are the changes that give you a better test experience:
  • New preview and review capabilities within a section
  • New "mark and review" feature to tag questions, so you can skip and return later
  • New ability to change/edit answers within a section
  • New on-screen calculator for the Quantitative Reasoning section
  • New questions that better reflect the skills you'll need for graduate and business school
  • New answer formats, including tasks such as numeric entry and highlighting a sentence in a passage to answer a question
  • Less reliance on vocabulary out of context, more emphasis on reading — and no antonyms or analogies
2. New types of questions in the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections, many featuring real-life scenarios that reflect the kind of thinking you'll do in today's demanding graduate and business school programs.

3. Special savings of 50% when you take the GRE revised General Test between August 1 and September 30, 2011. The 50% discount means big savings for you — and another big advantage to taking the GRE revised General Test.

4. Important score reporting information you need to know: If you take the GRE revised General Test during our special discount period of August – September 2011, your scores will be sent by mid-November. However, if you need your scores before November, take the current test before August.

Smartphone plans are tricky when it comes to voice service. You can either go overboard and have a thousand or more extra minutes that you won’t use every month, or lowball your usage and count your minutes near the end of each billing cycle to make sure you don’t exceed the cap.
