Besides not having a dedicated Grammar section — what makes The TOEFL iBT Exam one of the most unique & innovative exams available — is that it essentially tests, not only one’s ability to function in a University-type setting, but…
…One’s Ability To Actually Learn!
Taking this into consideration — this is a test that EVERYONE has the ability to “pass”. As long as he or she is able to Follow Directions Explicitly, and perform each task Efficiently & Effectively.
. However — it should be noted that The TOEFL iBT Exam is not actually based on a “Pass–Fail” system. It is graded on a “Point” system. So the “Passing” score is whatever is required by the University or Institution that one is applying to — and thus, is determined by each individual Learning Institution.
Finally — The TOEFL iBT Exam tests AUTHENTIC English. Therefore — it is possible to make a mistake and STILL receive a “Perfect” score for some of the Questions & Tasks in The Exam.
. This is because everyone (including those who are native English speakers) makes mistakes as a natural part of speaking. This includes: “False Stops” — Slight Mis-Pronunciations — and Changing One’s Mind In Mid-Sentence. Because of this, it is possible to make a few mistakes on parts of this exam and STILL get an Excellent score!!! 😎
