A Complete Guide

The TOEFL iBT Test is divided into four sections: Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing. Each section has a score range of 0-30, and the four section scores are added together for a total score of 0-120.

The score range for each section of the TOEFL iBT test is divided into four or five levels of proficiency. This helps to more accurately assess the skills of the test taker. Each of these sections has distinct levels based on the scores obtained.
