    TOEFL IBT SPEAKING RESCORE from 24 to 26

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi, Dear TOEFL IBT community on URCH forum, I have been taken toefl many times for my FPGEC license. I took the toefl ibt on 01/18/2013, I got 24 in speaking and 29 in writing , 25 in reading and 26 in listening. I again took the toefl on 02/02/2013 and got 24 in speaking , 29 in writing and 23 in reading.

    24, 24 two times in speaking.

    Do you think I should apply for rescore for these exams. Is there any person recently that got 26 after rescore.

    I need as many people as to see is it really worth to spend $80 to apply for rescore as most of the case it does not make any difference.

    Please share your experience.

    I have had several students apply for rescoring and seen their 24/30 increase to a 26. I'm not sure of the exact odds, but you probably have at least a 30 - 40% chance of your speaking score going up one more level from 24 to 26. For those who score 23/30 or below, though, I don't think it's worth the rescoring.

    Hello TOEFL Corey,
    Is it true that either your score will decrease or increase when you apply for rescoring? I got 24/30 in the speaking section and I would like to give it a try to pay $80 just to get 26.

    No, that's not actually true. ANYTHING is possible. The re-scoring could yield a higher score, a lower score, or no change at all.

    Hello Inspiration,
    It's worth ordering a rescore. I have heard of two instances where a rescoring resulted in 26 from 24 or 25.
    Albanna, check Notefull speaking on YouTube , it's a great tool for structuring your answers. I used it in my prep, followed the exact structure recommended & I got 26 in speaking on first attemp.
    Best wishes.

    I'm almost sure no one got rescored from a 25 to a 26. Maybe from a 24 to a 26, that's possible.

    Hi Albanna,
    in my opinion, the key is to practice a lot before the actual exam, because the questions tend to follow the same pattern. For the reading, the key to finishing all the questions in the allotted time is to not waste time reading the whole passage. Just read the passage that relates to the question you are answering. The questions willl state which paragraph it relates to & question one will normally relate to paragraph one and so on. It may sound weird but its a strategy that works, you just need to practice it a couple of time to see it works.
    For the writing , practice writing essays on the topics in the writinng section of the official toefl guide, you can compare it to sample essays on Test magic website, or if you can get someone to grade the essays for you. Generally, the essay should be 4 or 5 paragraphs , first & last being your introduction and conclusion.every other paragraph in between should each be devoted to one point. Give examples where possible.
    for the listening. The key is effective note taking. Again , Practice often to to know what the probable question s will be& that way you will be able to jot down only the relevant points.
    hope this helps & best wishes in your exam

    Hi Dears,

    I took TOEFL IBT several times and in my last attempt I scored overall 99 (R-28, L-26, S-20, W-25), however I need a minimum of 100 to be admitted into the university I want to. Do you think it is worth applying for rescoring, what is the possibility of getting increase in my score by one point? Moreover, I want to request rescoring for only one section, but I'm not sure about which, Speaking or Writing. Which one has more chance to be increased at least by one point? Thanks in advance for your help and responses.
