    Question Safe TOEFL Speaking Sub-score

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi friends,

    I would like to ask for your opinion on whether my TOEFL speaking sub-score is high enough for PhD programs in quantitative marketing.

    Test Date: July 28th, 2019
    Speaking: 24/30
    Reading: 30:30
    Listening: 29/30
    Writing: 29/30

    I have a master degree from U.S. for which some programs could waive their TOEFL for me. However, I am hesitating to retake TOEFL given some anecdotal evidence that some programs desk-reject applicants with Speaking Sub-Score lower than 26, e.g. CMU Tepper. I feel appreciated for your advice.

    Re: Safe TOEFL Speaking Sub-score

    For most schools, your TOEFL score is more than enough.

    However, there are indeed some schools that require more than that (24) for each section. When I applied, I remember a few schools explicitly asking for at least 25, if I'm not mistaken.

    Some schools also accept the IELTS, and I found the speaking section of the IELTS much more natural than the one from TOEFL. For the IELTS, you meet and talk with a real person.
