Hi my dear friends,

Like many other students here, after finishing our test, we come to "just
finish TOEFL test" to post our result. Posting such news, I would like to
express my enthusiasm, my sentiments to all of you. I really appreciate the time we work and study together, the time we discuss and sometimes debate quite tensely. :D
Okie, its time to speak about my test.
The beginning time in the admission ticket was 8:30 AM. To avoid the
traffic jam, I come to test center quite soon, about 7:45. All the test
procedures really began at 8:30. There were only 2 officers to verify the
identification of 200 candidates, so until about :crazy:9:45 :crazy:we can do our first
section "Writing essay". Our topic was #133: "Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? A person's childhood years (the time from birth to twelve years of age) are the most important years of a person's life. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer."
To tell the true, the essay I wrote in the test is my first essay I've
written. During the preparation time, I have no time ( and willing) to write myself any essay. I don't expect to have a high score in the essay section.
Then came the listening section. We had 50 questions: 30 of sort
conversation + 9 of long conversation +11 of lecture. Yet, listening is
always my weakness. I had to guess some and hope they are correct.
The structure section was similar to what we usually see here on Testmagic forum:). Most of them are easy, besides there are 2-3 difficult ones. I used 22/25 minutes to complete this section.
The reading section we had 5 passages with 50 questions. In my eyes, only passage about "sediment- the creation of ocean floor" is difficult. I still had 5 minutes after finishing this section.
Okie, I like to do a forecast about my result :p, since unlike CBT in which you
can evaluate your result right after your test, in PBT, we must wait at
least 1 month to get result from ETS
Section 1: 35/50 - 41/50 : converted score : 52-56
Section 2: 35/40 - 38/40 : converted score : 61-68
Section 2: 40/50 - 45/50 : converted score : 58-62
Total converted score : 170 - 186
TOEFL score 570 - 620
hey, just a funny prediction! I will post my result after 1 month!
Good luck to me plzzzz, everyone !
Thank all of you !

Hi sorcerer,
How did you do your test? Was there a room #2? [xx(][xx(][xx(] I though we had only one! How many candidates were in your room?
Post here your feeling about the test :)

hi socrerer,

Which degree are you applying for? Undergraduate or graduate? As in your post, maybe your institution requires TOEFL 550 :)
Best wish to your application
