    Your 24/30 in writing indicates, I believe, that your raw score was 7.5/10, meaning that you got 4/5 on one of your essays and 3.5 on the other. If you apply for rescoring and the lower essay ends up being a solid 4/5, then your overall writing score would improve, but only to 25/30 (giving you a 98 overall).

    The only way your scaled score in writing could increase by 3 points or more is if at least one of your essays was judged a perfect 5/5 upon rescoring. To be honest, I don't think this is terribly likely, but if you feel you did an exceptional job on either or both essays, I suppose you could give it a shot.

    Best of luck to you...

    Writing based on reading and listening--------Good(4.0 - 5.0)
    Writing based on knowledge and experience---Fair(2.5 - 3.5)

    Corey, Thanks for information. I am facing difficulty in understanding the toefl writing evaluation structure. Can u please reevaluate my scores. since we can apply for rescore in 3 months time. Are they flexible in giving 3 to 5 days more time

    OK, Pradeep, this is consistent with what I told you earlier. Your INTEGRATED essay was scored a 4/5, so it says good (4.0 - 5.0). However, one of the two raters for your INDEPENDENT essay only scored it a 3/5, so the combined average was 3.5, which led to a "fair" (don't pay any attention to the words, though, since they don't really mean anything -- it's only the scaled scores that affect you).

    As I said before, the only way your writing score jumps from a 24 all the way to a 27 or higher would be if one of your essays became a perfect 5/5 upon rescoring (I guess it would have to be your integrated). Even if your independent essay is scored as a 4/5 in rescoring (rather than it's original 3.5), your overall score will only go up to 25/30.

    Corey, this information is very detailed and helpful. In my opinion, I think going for a rescore in this case will be a waste of time. Relying on either essay to be rescored as a 5/5 is just unlikely in my opinion, and it is also possible the other essay could be lowered! The way you (Corey) explain the details of the scoring helps explain this.

    pradeep: sorry, as I assume this is not what you want to hear, but you need to take the TOEFL again. Perhaps a few private lessons with Corey will help boost your writing? ;-)

    Thnks dude. Did u see any of ur friends increase by abt 1 pt??
    But there are also chances of my Integrated Writing to go to 4.5(from 4.0) and Independent writing go to 4 (from 3.5) but its all subjective as it depends on raters. So thinking abt it....

    Yes, but if you get 4.5 and 4.0, then your mean score is 4.25 which = 26, not 27. You need a mean of 4.5 to get 27. This is what Corey meant, I think. Am I right Corey?

    Actually, Tino, I think a raw score of 9 points (4.5 average) would be a 28/30, so perhaps an 8.5 raw score (mean of 4.25) might be okay. However, I don't know if they use one rater per essay on rescoring or the regular two, so perhaps his hypothetical situation isn't even possible (improving by 0.5 on BOTH of his two essays).

    In any event, he would have to get at least one perfect 5/5 (from one of the two or four total raters) during rescoring, and based on the original scores (4.0 and 3.5), this doesn't look too promising...

    I was told that for rescoring the essay (or speaking) goes through the same process as the original score. But I was told by someone who claimed to have been told that at a seminar on TOEFL by ETS, so the person at the seminar could have been wrong, the person telling me could have been wrong, etc....

    Is there a raw to final score chart? I was just calculating in my head. I looked at ETS.com and didnt see one.

    Thanks!
