Hola Cielo,

I took the TOEFL some weeks ago and I also guessed at least 2-3 questions in the listening section and I got a 29/30.

I'm sure if you get all the questions right in the real exam, you will get a 30.

To avoid distractions during the exam, I suggest you to use earplugs all the time, even during the Listening section. Then turn volume up to the limit and then you will only hear the conversations. In my exam I brought my own silicone earplugs and they saved my exam.

Good luck

It is given the range because you might get the experimental questions.
You can have either long Reading Section or long Listening Section.
If you make a mistake during the listening section, and it is a short one, most likely, you will not get the maximum score.
If you make a mistake during the listening section, and it is a long one, and a question that is experimental and doesn't count, then you are likely to get the maximum score.
