The TOEFL in the MBA admissions process
Graduate Management Admissions Test
The Test Of English as Foreign Language (TOEFL) is a standardized test that has been designed to assess a person’s ability to understand and produce English as it is used in a university setting. International prospective students must take a test of English to certify their level as non-native English speakers. The TOEFL is the most required and recognized test. TOEFL scores are therefore used by many MBA and Master programs as a part of the admissions process. That is why it should not be underestimated.

TOEFL scores: you’ll never fail!
The TOEFL test is graded on a 0 to 120 range. The score determines your level of English, so you cannot fail on the TOEFL. Generally, Masters and MBA programs will require a proficiency level of English ranging from 95 to 110 points.
To get such scores preparation is crucial. Here is why:
1. The test is time-limited
It implies that even though you are good at English, you'll need to learn strategies to read, understand and pick the right answer as quickly as possible.
2. The testing environment is stressful
The test is administered on computer; therefore, on top of mastering English skills, you'll have to master the American keyboard while essay writing. Plus, you'll have to speak out loud among a large group of test takers while getting assessed on the Speaking part.
3. It is a high-stakes test for your academic future
You have to reach your target score to maximize your chances of admission in the program of your dreams. Don't leave your future to chance!
