Wouldn’t you love to give in your best and get the score that you have always wanted? In order to get a good TOEFL score, it is essential that you know what exactly a good TOEFL score is, and how much you should aim for.

On the contrary to the popular belief, obtaining a high score in TOEFL or any other examination, is just a matter of how well you are prepared or much effort you are willing to put in. In order to qualify for theTOEFL, you will have to give in two tests i.e. Internet based test, and a paper based test.

Studies indicate that the internet based test evaluates the candidates appearing for the exam on the basis of four categories (Reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills. The scoring scheme is as follows.

Reading skills: Under this section, an average score would be about 15 to 21 points. However, if you are aiming for a high score, then perhaps you would need to strive for a score ranging from 22 to 30 points. Anything below 15 is considered a low score.

Listening skills: While most students fare about 14 to 21 points in this section, a high score is something between 22 to 30 points.

Speaking skills: As students are tested on their speaking skills in the TOEFL internet based test, a score of 3.5-4 is very good. But a 2.5-3.0 is considered a decent score too.

Writing skills: Though most students find this section relatively difficult, adequate practice and preparation could get you a score of 4 to 5 which is an excellent score in this section.

Under the TOEFL Internet based score, attaining an overall score of 120 points is the highest score that one can obtain in the test.

The paper based test is divided into four categories, which consists of the listening comprehension, written expression, reading comprehension, and total score.

Under the listening comprehension and written expression section, a score of 68 points is considered to be a very good score. And a score of 67 points is a high score.

A total score of 677 is a definitely very good score that could make you eligible to apply at some of the best universities. So go ahead, and give your best because as they say, hard work pays!
