What is the new pattern for TOEFL?



  • I read the pattern for TOEFL changed last year. I want to know what the new test pattern is and how the reduced exam time could affect my scores.



  • Here's the new TOEFL pattern-

    Reading (54–72 minutes)
    30–40 questions Read passages and respond to questions
    Listening (41–57 minutes)
    28–39 questions Answer questions about brief lectures or classroom discussions
    Speaking (17 minutes)
    4 tasks Talk about a familiar topic and discuss material you read and listened to
    Writing (50 minutes)
    2 tasks Read a passage, listen to a recording, type your response

    The test time has been reduced. But so have the number of questions. So, it should not affect your scores in any manner.
