The TOEFL test is an authoritative English language proficiency test in more than 130 countries and regions around the world, recognized by more than 10,000 institutions of higher learning.
Official ETS information shows that four-fifths of US college admissions officers use the TOEFL test as the first choice for all English proficiency tests. Of candidates using TOEFL scores, 90% have successfully applied to their 1st or 2nd choice of university. The authority and recognition of the TOEFL test also make it popular among the majority of candidates. The data shows that the number of TOEFL test transcripts sent to US universities is much larger than that of all other English test transcripts received by these universities.
In addition to the United States, the TOEFL test is widely recognized worldwide. TOEFL scores can be used for applications to prestigious universities in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan and Hong Kong.
Furthermore, the scope of the TOEFL test is not limited to the field of study abroad. TOEFL scores are not only an important indicator for undergraduate and postgraduate admissions, but can also be used to increase scholarship application success rates and scholarship credits.
In recent years, some foreign companies have used the TOEFL test scores to test the applicant’s English proficiency when recruiting staff.
