Hello,

I got 98 on TOEFL, Reading - 27, Listening - 26, Speaking 22 and Writing - 23

Shall I retake it? I am going for MBA.

What are the good colleges requirements? What does this mean when colleges say minimum 100? Is this the average score or you need minimum 100?

Thank you.

Hello,

When school says minimum 100, it means that you should have at least scored 100 to meet requirement, therefore if you want to apply for university that requires minimum 100 on TOEFL IBT, you need to retake it. Minimum requirement changes depending on university. But for MBA program, most of good universities require minimum 100. From your scores in subsections, I see that you have very good balanced score, you are just 2 points away from 100. Therefore, I think you can increase your score in your next attempt and with some practice you can increase your writing score a few points and get 100. I know it is tough decision but it is worth to retake. Because I once scored 99 and decided to retake, and scored 104. Now I feel safe to have score over 100. Anyway, you should weigh your pros and cons on retake. There are many discussions on retake, just search for it in this forum and in other forums, you will find a lof stuff. Good luck.

Hi hitgmathard,

If you want to improve your TOEFL score you should look at Notefull's website: https://av107.isrefer.com/go/nfh/rsn64160/

There's a lot of great stuff there for free (great videos for the speaking section). In my case in particular I had a great help from Notefull with the Speaking and Writing sections and was able to score 111/120. Notefull has certainly helped me achieve the threshold needed for top business schools and I was admitted at London Business School MBA programme beginning in August 2014.

Apart from the free materials, there is a lot of paid courses (not that expensive). You can check them here: https://av107.isrefer.com/go/toefl-products/rsn64160/

If you want further information about Notefull send me a private message.

Cheers, Ricardo
