How To Register for TOEFL and Report Your Scores – STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTION
Hello guys! And welcome to my channel. I know that many of you are about to apply in the university of your dreams somewhere abroad, probably in the USA. And you have this question “how do I send TOEFL scores to that university” Many of you ask that question. in the comments below. So here is the answer. The first thing I want you to remember is please don’t take TOEFL just for the sake of taking TOEFL and finding out your score. There are so many resources online where you can take the TOEFL test and you will automatically get your results for reading and listening part. I’ll leave a couple of links below the materials you can use to actually take TOEFL test at home. As for the speaking and writing part you need to hire a tutor or someone who has experience passing TOEFL to give you feedback. This teacher can’t be a random English language tutor. This teacher has to be a professional TOEFL teacher who will actually guide you through the tips and tricks that you have to do to pass TOEFL. I’ll leave a link below Jonathan, who’s my teacher actually helps students with speaking and writing parts and other parts as well. So please don’t waste your money. Don’t go and take TOEFL multiple times. Even if you fail, then you’ll lose that motivation. You’ll think “I’ve failed TOEFL and wouldn’t get to the university of my dreams”. But that comes from the lack of preparation. Maybe if you spend another two or three weeks, or a month preparing for TOEFL with the right teacher and the right book you’d save that money of taking multiple TOEFL test. And go and take TOEFL, get the score you need. I’ve passed my TOEFL with a first attempt and I scored 117 out of 120. Before actually taking the test you can tell ETS which is the organisation that organises TOEFL where you want TOEFL scores to be sent for free and you can send them to 4 different institutions before you take TOEFL. So what I did I had a list of 6 different universities where I wanted to apply to and I knew that I can send my TOEFL scores to 3 or 4 different universities and I’d have to pay extra fees for the other two. If you go to a university, or other institution’s website Click “international admissions”, select “TOEFL” they would have an institution’s code which you type in when you register for TOEFL. I’m going go and log into my account and show you the whole process. Let me show you how you find out instituon’s code on institution’s website. I’ve chosen Stanford business school. We go to Admission. And then you click “application materials”. Or it could be international admission or language test requirements. Here we see TOEFL, IELTS, PTE, click that. Here’s all information about TOEFL, and you need minimum 100 to be eligible for Stanford application. and it also tells you score validity. TOEFL is valid for 2 years. Here they tell you how to repoty your TOEFL score to Stanford. Here’s the institution code. It’s 4004. I’m going to copy that. I advise you to have a sheet with all university codes. So you don’t loose them. Now I go to ETS.org. This is the website of TOEFL organisers. I select TOEFL. I already have an account here because I took my TOEFL in 2015. I’m going to show you how to register for TOEFL. So here on my homepage I click “register for a test”. Now I select “TOEFL test”. Here’s the important informaton, don’t forget to read it. I agree to terms and conditions. I’m going to choose a location. After selection the exact location I’d also need to give them my prefered dates for taking TOEFL test in order to see when I can actually do it. So after giving the dates the ets.org website gives me a list of places where I can take TOEFL and let’s select “American academy of English” and click “continue”. Here you select your score reporting preferences and it says online score only. This is what I advise you to select. I’ve never seen an institution that requires a paper copy. You don’t actually need it because you can print it out yourself. You don’t really need a paperback copy. Here’s the page where you type in the institutions or score recipients. Universities that you want to receive your TOEFL score. You put in institution code here and click “search”. Here’s Stanford. Stanford university and and it’s graduate school of management that I’m kinda applying to. I have three more options. Three more universities where I can send my score for three. You can actually add more but they’d start charging you 90 dollars starting with a fifth institution. Because I’m just showing you how it works I’m going to click “continue”. This is some questionnare you can skip. Here you need to understand and agree with the terms. This is where they upsell you with different books and materials for TOEFL preparation. I don’t know. I’ve never used them. I click “skip”. Don’t forget that I’ll leave the link to materials that I used below. Here’s the price of my TOEFL test. It’s 190$ It might be more expensive in other countries because I took my first TOEFL test in Russia and it cost around 250. Might be wrong, I don’t remember. Here’s what you see that I’m reporting my score to Stanford and they charge my 0 and I save money. And I click “confirm order”. It’s all done. Thank you guys for watching this video.
