TOEFL preparation at PATHE

The TOEFL iBT™ test, administered in an internet-based format, is an important part of your journey to study in an English-speaking country. The TOEFL iBT test measures your ability to use and understand English at the university level. And it evaluates how well you combine your listening, reading, speaking and writing skills to perform academic tasks.

Each year, nearly a million individuals of all ages take the TOEFL test to demonstrate their English-language proficiency. More than 25 million people from all over the world have taken the TOEFL test since it was first offered. It has to be taken for/by:

  • Students planning to study at a higher education institution
  • English language learning programme admissions and exit
  • Scholarship and certification candidates
  • English-language learners who want to track their progress
  • Students and workers applying for visas

More than 7,500 colleges, agencies and other institutions in over 130 countries accept TOEFL scores. Other organizations rely on TOEFL scores as well:

  • Immigration departments use them to issue residential and work visas
  • Medical and licensing agencies use them for professional certification purposes

" Individuals use them to measure their progress in learning English.
According to statistics taken for the TOEFL exam, the average scores achieved by Sri Lankan students are: Reading 19/30, Listening 20/30, Speaking 21/30, Writing 21/30, Total 81/120.
