Hi there,

I am going to take my TOEFL exam in 5 days and I am pretty confident about my vocabulary, grammar etc.

There is only one minor clue that scares me:

My integrated essay is ALWAYS between 390 and 450 words long instead of the expected 175-225. The reason for this is that I always include as many details, examples and specific numbers I can remeber from the listening, which I just can not turn off since I remember them and therefore I want to use them.

Will this affect my score?
I am not sure since the directions say something about "summarizing important points".

I do summarize the reading and keep that pretty short, but not the counterpart of the listening.
I consider examples and exact details from the listening, which most often counter the reading, as very important.

So again: Does anyone know if that may hurt my score?

Kindest regards
