Is TOEFL compulsory

Post Sun May 29, 2011 12:43 am
I have seen in many B'Schools' sites that TOEFL is not required for the students who have had their college education in English. I did my UG in english and is TOEFL is mandatory for my B'School application. If yes would like to know about the books that are useful for preparation. How much time is required for preparation? What is the score expected by the B'Schools? Smile Thank you.

For most schools, students from India need to submit TOEFL. It is safer to take the test rather than not.

The test is very easy and you just need a bare minimum score. If you can read my response here, then I think you will score way more than that average. Smile

I took the test without even knowing what the format is. Just prep for a week or so. It is basic English.

It is best to check the school's website, they usually publish very detailed instructions regarding TOEFL requirements and waivers. If you're still not sure, just email them and ask.

Hi Sheriff,

I had the same query regarding TOEFL. I am an Indian candidate and am done with my GMAT exam. I have had English as my first language throughout my schooling as well as during graduation. I did write an email to the AdComs of the colleges that I am interested in applying to and fortunately all of them have waived the TOEFL requirement for me.

Am I still required to give the TOEFL?

Best Regards

HI,
I too scored the same score.I am completely devastated. I scored 27/R, 25/L, 22/S, 23/W.
I am surprised on my writing section score.I don't know what went wrong.I never copied a word from the passage,always stick to a structure i.e start,body and conclusion.Still!
What should I do? give TOEFL again? Pls reply
