My question is:
Out of 120 marks for TOEFL exam, is it true that we will be getting 60 marks score as soon as we finish the exam ar have to wait till ets uploads?
Since TOEFL is now an internet based test candidates don't get the score immediately.You have to wait for two weeks for the result.
Most of the candidates get less score in Speaking section than the other sections because they speak very fast . I would advise them to speak slowly and clearly. Further, they should speak to the point and should not beat around th bush.
