TOEFL 95 in a week [#permalink]
15 Dec 2012, 12:45
Just received my score and I am a bit frustrated. Not for the score, but to have an "almost there".
I did not have much time, either. I was not focused on studying it, because I thought: "I need to have a decent GMAT first. Before that, my dreams of MBA are unrealistic". Then I managed to score a 680 after 5 attempts from 480 to 560.
But as many of you may know, the R2 deadlines are about to come, and I don't have much time left. Then, I scheduled a TOEFL test for the following week.
It was a crazy week: getting back from vacations, several layoff in my work, writing essays,... phew!
Nonetheless, I scored:
I did expect "low" scores in reading, listening and speaking. In reading, I read a too boring passage and could not manage to understand it well. In listening I had too many sections, probably because I did experimental questions. I know that because I was the last to leave the testing center, and I had read only 3 passages in the previous section.
I got tired and out of fuel, and because of that, I almost missed an entire listening talk.
In speaking, for me the most difficult part, I got a bit confused about how to answer to the questions. It's awkward to talk to a computer... lol!
To my surprise, I had a decent score in writing.
Well, I took another test yesterday and I am expecting the results... I'll keep you guys posted.
