The Structure Of The TOEFL Exam


The Total Time of The TOEFL iBT Exam is between 3.5 to 4 Hours, from beginning to end — with a 10-Minute Break in the middle of The Exam.


Notice! — It has been stated that — Since August 1st, 2019The TOEFL Exam Has Been Shortened!  The relevant changes are reflected in the table below.


The Entire Exam is broken-up into 4 Sections, for the 4 Language Skills:  Reading, Listening, Speaking, & Writing — (in that order).  Each Section has a different time-length, and a different amount of Questions & Tasks.

As you can see from the table above — there are different times for each Section — and there are different times for each Task.  The timer runs automatically and can not be stopped.  This means that — (beyond the scheduled 10-Minute break) — there are no breaks in-between each Section.

Even during the 10-Minute Break, the timer will still keep running — and It is NOT possible to stop the timer for any reason, once it has begun.
