IBT TOEFL Registration

TOEFL iBT Registration Options

TOEFL is a standardised test conducted to assess the competence of an individual in the English language. The Internet-based TOEFL test is called iBT TOEFL and the paper-based TOEFL is called PBT TOEFL. The test results of TOEFL are used mainly for academic purposes. TOEFL has four sections that aim to assess the abilities of the test-taker in various aspects of the English language. The four sections of TOEFL are: Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. Both the modules of TOEFL have different registration formats. As for the iBT TOEFL registration, it can be done in four ways. The four different iBT TOEFL registration processes are discussed here under:

Online iBT TOEFL Registration:

Online registration is made available to TOEFL candidates at all hours until a week before the test. Candidates need to fill up the online form and procure their payment vouchers for payment during registration. The payment vouchers can be procured from Resellers or from the Resource Centres that are available for iBT TOEFL registration.





Points to consider while registering for iBT TOEFL, online:

  • Candidates need to remember that the modes of payment are monitored by the ETS and can be changed without any notification. Every candidate should check for the current status regarding the payments for iBT TOEFL registration at the links given below.

  • He/she should also double-check the spellings of their name before filling up the online forms as name corrections can be a tedious job after the registration is complete. Candidates may also not be allowed to enter the test centres if their names do not match with their identity cards that were used for filling up the registration details.

In-person iBT TOEFL Registration:

To register for TOEFL iBT in-person, candidates need to visit a Resource Centre for the TOEFL iBT or get the registration vouchers from the Voucher Resellers of TOEFL. These are the same vouchers that can also be used for the other methods of iBT TOEFL registration. In-person registration should be done at least a week before the test so that there is enough time remaining for the test centres to register the details of the candidates. Last minute registration can get erroneous and can thus cause undue problems on the day of the test.

Proper registration is like winning half the battle for important tests like TOEFL. This is because; all the preparation will be useless if problems due to faulty registration occur on the test day. These problems may or may not get resolved, but in any case will leave the candidates harassed and take their focus away from the test, which is something that no TOEFL candidate would want.
