Your TOEIC score is supposed to indicate how well you can manage in English in everyday, workplace situations. The TOEIC exams test your ability to communicate in the four main English language skills – reading, listening, speaking and writing. To get a high score, you need to:
- familiarize yourself with the test format
- practice and develop the required language and academic skills
- implement strategies and techniques to earn extra marks in the speaking and writing sections of the exam.
The score is determined by the number of correct answers, which are then converted to a scale score of 0—200. You receive separate scores in each of the four modules – listening, reading, writing and speaking – and a fifth score, which is your overall score. Your TOEIC score is valid for up to 2 years.
How and where you receive your score depends on the country where you take the test. You could receive your score through your school/employer or at your home.
