The TOEFL test itself does not determine a qualifying score. The performance requirements for enrollment are set by the colleges. Specific score requirements are included in the enrollment information published by these institutions. Generally, different colleges have different requirements for different majors, and the requirements of the same institution may be slightly different for different years.

The scores required for application to different institutions vary. Generally speaking, more than 106 points in the TOEFL test can be regarded as a high score. Both undergraduate and postgraduate applicants achieving more than 105 points in the TOEFL test can effectively improve their chances of applying to the top 30 schools in the United States. In schools ranked 30-75, undergraduate applicants need 90 points and graduate students need more than 100 points. It should be noted that some higher-ranking schools may also require individual scores (for example, for the Speaking and Writing section).

The TOEFL score is valid for two years from the date of the test. If you are not satisfied with your score, you can re-sit the test. There is no limit on the number of times you re-sit it. The interval between sitting the test twice must be at least 12 days. You can choose your best test result from the system and send it to the institution to which you are applying.
