View Full Version : Need help to calculate my score 210-267

Just finish my Toefl test today,
listening 24
structure 13-30
reading 25
total 210-267

I need at least 250.
Is there anyone now what the score will be if my TWE is 4.0.

I calculate by myself, the TWE is 17, so I try 17/6*4=11.33, the structure will be 24.33. It probabably =247.
So sad that my score <250.
Is the method I use to calculate the score right?

Yes, that's about right. You will probably need 4.5 to get over 250. Good luck!! :)

Thanks for the answer!

But I still confused about the score.
It is the second time I took CBT. The first time, I get listening 25, reading 25 and structure 9-27. And my TWE is 4.0

If I use the same method to calculate the score, it will be 18/6*4=12 and my total structure should be 21. my total score should be 237.

But when I received my official score, it is 240. They give me TWE 13 for 4.0 and my structure score become 22.

That's very strange, isn't it?

As I know, that is only the way to approximate our scores. 2 of my friends got the scores in the same range and they also got the same TWE sores. Surprisingly, their overall scores are different. Therefore, I think there are other factors that ETS used to calculate TOEFL scores such as the number of questions you got in each part..
That is only what I think..

Yes, TOEFL will not release the scoring algorithm, and there may be some slight variations. There's nothing we can do about it, nor is there a way (that I know of) to figure out exactly what the scoring algorithm is.

At any rate, since you don't know exactly what your essay score will be, it's kind of wasted energy to fret about your score at this point--please, try not to worry so much right now. Your test is finished; it is out of your hands. If you have faith, try to have faith that only good things will come in your life now. :)
