Finished TOEFL today, feeling hopeless with no results. [#permalink] New post 22 Jan 2010, 13:39
Hi All,

I wrote my TOEFL exam today and I feel hopeless as I dont have the results in front of me.

I got 5 passages, out of which I screwed the first passage out of anxiety and the subject matter.

Listening went well and I got 2 sets of 10 minutes for 1 conversation and 2 lectures, I missed answering one question ,again lack of time.

Speaking went well, atleast I think so it did, spoke clearly into the microphone,results should speak for it.

Writing went well again , fairly simple integrated and writing tasks.

I have 30 in verbal -GMAT. I have many questions racing in my head right now

1)do you think i will pass, ie get 100 atleast ?
2) with 80% accuracy in reading how much can I expect(0-30) ?with 90% in listening what score can I expect (0-30)?
3)For parttime mba will the colleges be strick abt their cut off of 100 or can I take the risk of not taking it again incase I have to..

Ofcourse speaking and writing are at the will of the examiners. I am left with this bad feeling and I dont have time to retake this exam. I am perplexed and anxious.

Please help! thanks

Hey SkpMatcha,
I don't understand why you feel hopeless

It's normal to be nervous while you wait for results, but there's no way we can know if you got +100 or no. Even I didn't know about myself after the exam, so...
About the accuracy, you can do the calculations yourself, there's not a big deal here, each question is worth 1 point (except some that are worth 2).

If it makes you feel any better, I expected a 96-102 and got a 107.

Good luck

Thanks Saruba ! I really appreciate it.

bb, I gave TOEFL ibt on jan 22nd and yes the results are not instantaneous, they post them online about 2 weeks later, for reading and listening atleast they should give the results then and there.

Saruba, Tell me onething, there are 5 passages 12 questions each, so 60 questions but 5 of them are worth 2 points each, so 55 points + 10 points = 65 points. lets say my accuracy is 80% then its 52/65. how will i know how much it is for 30 ?? what is the algorithm here? any idea ?
