Your preparations for the iBT TOEFL exam should begin months ahead of the
date you plan to take this important test. Given that many institutions
make admittance decisions based on TOEFL scores, it’s imperative
to spend plenty of time studying and practicing English in an intensive
iBT TOEFL prep class. In addition to honing your English skills; however, there are a
few other steps you need to take to prepare for the test day.
Registering for the TOEFL Exam
There are three methods of registering for the iBT TOEFL exam. Perhaps
the easiest is to
register online by visiting the ETS website. If you plan to register by phone, download the registration form from
the ETS website before you call the company. Review the form to make sure
you have all the information you need. Alternatively, fill out the form
you’ve downloaded and mail it in. Bear in mind that if you plan
to register by mail, the form must be received by ETS at least four weeks
before the date of the test. With any method, make sure your name is spelled
exactly as it appears on the identification you will use.
Gathering Needed Items
After registering for the iBT TOEFL exam, you’ll receive a registration
number. Keep this in a safe place because you’ll need to bring it
with you on the test day. You’ll also need to bring two original,
valid forms of identification that include your photograph, signature,
and your full name spelled exactly as it appears on your iBT TOEFL registration.
Arriving at the Testing Center
You may wish to travel to the testing center ahead of the test date to
evaluate how long it will take you to get there. You are required to arrive
at the test site 30 minutes prior to the start of the exam. At the testing
center, you’ll present your registration number and identification,
and your photograph will be taken. Then, you’ll be assigned a seat.
