Hello,

8 years ago, I took paper test Toefl and scored around 500-550. Can you please advise, what is this score's equivalent in IBT grading?

And can you please advise what is the approximate preparation time needed to score 100-110 on IBT Toefl?

Regards,
Jack

Hm...... you can get a translation, but!
1. The test format/areas tested are very different now (there is no grammar for example)
2. The score you received 8 years ago is going to be different now due to the change in test and change in your english proficiency
3. Prep time will vary on your starting level and time you put in. Many say the listening/speaking sections are the hardest, see this one: my-experience-79168.html

TOEFL is valid for just 2 years so you need to take the exam again and many business schools no longer accept paper based TOEFL

Good luck
