TOEIC Test Administration

All TOEIC exams take a few hours. Since you need to arrive early, you could be spending several hours at the test centre. Make sure to eat a proper meal before the exam, dress comfortably and be well-rested.

You will need to bring the required identification documents with you. These may include a passport, national identity card, etc so find out clearly in advance. You may also need two recent passport photos. Check these official requirements at least twice – once at the time of registration and once a few days before the exam, in case of any changes.

Generally, you are not allowed to bring any personal items into the testing room, other than your ID. You could be asked to empty your pockets, and / or leave your personal belongings in another room. No mobile phones, dictionaries, electronic spell-checkers, tape recorders, highlighters, correction fluid, coats, pencil cases, pens, pencils or other objects or devices are permitted into the test room. Check in advance, if in doubt.

Activities are restricted to those related to the TOEIC exam. Talking, smoking, eating, drinking and cheating are all prohibited.

If you have a question or comment regarding the rules, procedures or your physical exam paper, you can raise your hand and a supervisor will come over to speak to you. You cannot ask questions related to the content of the test. So make sure you familiarize yourself with these beforehand.
