Understanding Your revised TOEFL® Paper-delivered Test Scores

There is no passing or failing score for the revised TOEFL® Paper-delivered Test. Score requirements are established by individual institutions and agencies.

Each section of the revised TOEFL Paper-delivered Test has a score range of 0–30. No total score is reported.

  • Using statistical analysis, we convert the raw scores for the Listening and Reading sections to a number between 0 and 30 (the TOEFL® test scale). This allows universities and institutions to compare students who took different versions of the same test.
  • Each correct answer in the Reading and Listening sections counts equally toward the score for that section.
  • Some questions in the test may not count toward the section score.
  • The Writing section is scored by an ETS Rater. See the Writing Scoring Guide.

All TOEFL scores are valid for 2 years.
