Help needed, admitted but short in TOEFL!!! [#permalink]
14 Jul 2012, 10:57
I need your help please!!!!.
Today I received my TOEFL scores and I got 92: Listening 21; Reading 24; Writting 25; Speaking 22. I hold a conditional offer from a top UK university subject to a minimum overall score of 100 with a minimum of 23 in Listening; 24 in Reading; 24 in Speaking and 23 in Speaking.
In summary the thing would be:
R - L - S - W - T Requirement: 24 - 23 - 23 - 24 - 100 Obtained: 24 - 21 - 22 - 25 - 92
Last date I have to take the test would be August 25th in order to have time to apply for Visa after the university gives me an unconditional offer.
I am really scare of not having enough time or skills to achieve the scores required, but I have made a lot of efforts to be admitted to the programme and also to obtain support to fund my education that I don't want to miss this opportunity.
My university allows applicants to take any of the following tests:
IELTS 7.0 with a min. of 6.0 in each component TOEFL 100 CAMBRIDGE CERTIFICATE OF PROFICIENCY IN ENGLISH - B CAMBRIDGE CERTIFICATE FOR ADVANCED ENGLISH - A PITMAN EXAMINATION IN INTERNATIONAL ESOL - Mastery Level PEARSON TEST OF ENGLISH - 69 with a minimum of 59 in each component.
In order to maximize the probability of success, I am willing to take up to 4 of these tests. I will take TOEFL and IELTS plus 2 other. Any of you have experience with the other alternatives?, maybe Cambridge or Pearson?.
Please guys, could you help me with your thoughts and experience. What should I do?. Is it possible to achieve those score levels in this short period?. Please advice me, I really need your help. Should I hire a personal tutor, buy some books, attend an online course??....what???.
