How to Earn a Score

To earn a score on the TOEFL PBT, you must do all of the following:
Answer at least 1 question in Listening Comprehension
Answer at least 1 question in Reading Comprehension
Answer at least 1 question in Structure and Written Expression
You will receive a score on each section and a total score for the entire test. Each correct answer counts equally toward the score for that section. There is no penalty for wrong answers. The total number of correct answers is called the "raw score."
Note: Some questions in the test may not count toward the section or total scores. There is no passing or failing score. Score requirements are established by individual institutions and agencies. TOEFL PBT Scores are valid for 2 years.

TWE (Test of Written English) Scores

The TWE score is reported on a scale of 1 to 6 and printed in a separate box on the TOEFL score report. It is not added to the TOEFL score. A score between 2 points on the scale (for example, 5.5, 3.5) can also be reported.
