TOEFL Eligibility Criteria: Age Limit

No specific age limit has been set by ETS for students who have aimed to appear in the TOEFL Test. However, it should be noted that the students must pass their 10+2 examination from a recognized board of education. No specific age limit helps students of every sector apply to study in foreign universities.

Just like no age limit, ETS has also not set any specific academic qualification for the candidates that have appeared for the examination. However, it has been observed that all the students are required to complete their 10+2 examination from any recognized educational board or Institution. This is the primary and most important criterion for students who have opted for the TOEFL Examination. This helps universities in selecting students who have aimed for a bright future career.

TOEFL iBT Home Edition: Eligibility

The main eligibility criteria of the TOEFL iBT home edition can be given by candidates who have an active connection to the internet and have a stable computer (desktop or laptop). It should be noted that the exam cannot be given through the help of a mobile or a tablet. Furthermore, the candidates who are taking the exam via the home edition version are allowed to use only one monitor. It should be noted that the candidates are not allowed to use multiple (dual monitors) for this examination. Furthermore, the candidates are also not allowed to use dual screens as well. The use of an approved operating system is necessary and the candidates are required to use a licensed operating system. The use of the unlicensed version and test mode version of the operating system must not be used during the examination. This strategy helps ETS ensure that proper transparency and fairness are being maintained among both modes of examination and that no additional advantages are being provided to the candidates who are taking the exam via the home edition.

TOEFL Eligibility for re-attempts

It has been observed that the TOEFL examination can be given repetitively and a candidate can take more than one attempt for this test. However, it should be noted that on the condition a candidate is opting for a re-attempt of the examination, that specific candidate must wait for approximately 3 days before reattempting the test.

It should be noted that the final score does not depend on the number of attempts that have been taken by the applicants. It has been observed that re-attempts of the test can be given by the candidates until they have achieved their intended target score. In a year, the test is conducted 60 times and a candidate is eligible to take the exam in all of these attempts.

What is the TOEFL Eligibility Score?

The overall eligibility of the students is assessed effectively through the help of a score of 120. These eligibility criteria have been fixed by different institutions and different organizations. It has been observed that to get admission in the schools and universities of the United States, a candidate must have a  TOEFL score of 100 consisting of a score of 25 in each of the sections such as in the reading section, speaking section, listening section, and writing section.
