Every year, millions of professionals and students around the world give TOEFL examinations. They aspire to move to foreign country for education or for job for which a high score of TOEFL examination is mandatory. This test is not based on the concept of highest is the winner and lowest is the loser. If you can obtain a decent score, you are a winner of the TOEFL test. Therefore, instead of developing a feeling of competition in your mind, try to obtain precise information about the test to score well.

Since TOEFL examination is given in a large number of countries, there are two formats followed according to the resources available. It is not mandatory that each country will follow the same format so make sure to find out about the format applicable in your region before starting the TOEFL preparation in Noida. The two formats followed under TOEFL are:

Paper based test: paper based test in TOEFL is a written examination in which you will have to write all your answers in an answer sheet. It is mostly applicable in the countries where there is a lack of internet facility. Some of the centers have started using computers (without any internet connection) for the test but a couple of remote centers still use the paper-based examination. For paper-based test, the time applicable is 2.5 hours and for computer-based test it is 4 hours since it includes a tutorial as well so go for the TOEFL preparation in Gurgaon accordingly.

It will include listening comprehension with 50 questions. You will listen to the comprehensions played through tape and work on the answers. Structure and written expression section includes 40 questions. Reading comprehension includes 50 questions. Writing section will include one question, which is generally an essay of some kind.

Internet based test: this test is done online from the center and is used by many centers all around the world. It was introduced to eliminate the other formats and help the students with quick evaluation and results. This format includes time applicable of 4.5 hours having four sections. Internet based format will not have the structure and writing section. The sections included are reading section with 36-56 questions, listening section with 34-51 questions, speaking section with 6 tasks and writing section with 2 tasks.

Make sure to go for the suitable TOEFL preparation in Noida according to your examination format. You can visit the TOEFL website to find out about the format applicable in the center closest to your location.
