The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is a globally recognized English test that is required by many US and Canadian universities as a prerequisite for admission.

The TOEFL is one of the most important English-language qualifications globally. Although used primarily in the United States, it is also accepted at institutions and universities worldwide and is an excellent indicator of the candidate's English skills.

The test itself is an internet-based test and consists of four parts to fully test the four skills - reading, listening, speaking and writing.

TOEFL is rated on a scale from 0 to 120, with each skill rated from 0 to 30. The points are added to get the final score. The number of points required to access an English-speaking university varies depending on the institution. However, a score of 80+ is usually sufficient to apply at the Bachelor level.
