The TOEFL Internet-Based Test (TOEFL iBT)

Introduction

TOEFL iBT is offered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) of the United States. The Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA) is appointed by the ETS to hold TOEFL iBT in Hong Kong.

You will have 3 hours to complete the TOEFL iBT test. The test has 4 sections:

  • Reading measures your ability to understand academic reading material written in English — 54–72 minutes; 30–40 questions.
  • Listening measures your ability to understand spoken English as it is used in colleges and universities — 41–57 minutes; 28–39 questions.
  • Speaking measures your ability to speak English in an academic context — 17 minutes; 4 tasks.
  • Writing measures your ability to write in English in a way that is appropriate for college and university course work — 50 minutes; 2 tasks.

The test emphasizes integrated skills and helps you confirm that you are ready to communicate your ideas about what you will read and listen to in English in your academic courses. Integrated tasks require you to combine more than one skill.

General Typhoon / Bad Weather Arrangements

As cancellation and/or postponement of an examination is a very serious matter, any decision to do so by the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA) will be made only when it is absolutely necessary. If weather conditions are at all doubtful (such as the possible hoisting of a Typhoon Signal No. 8 or above or the issue of the Rainstorm Red or Black Warning), candidates should pay attention to the radio or television broadcast, or view the HKEAA website for examination schedules right up to the time they leave for the examination centre. Candidates should note that:

(a) under normal circumstances, the HKEAA announcement of the postponement/cancellation of an examination will be made approximately two hours before the commencement of the examination;

(b) the announcement of closure of schools due to a tropical cyclone/the issue of the Rainstorm Red or Black Warning does not necessarily imply any postponement/cancellation of an examination scheduled to be held on that day;

(c) unless an announcement has been made by the HKEAA that examinations/public examinations/ international and professional examinations held by the HKEAA are postponed/cancelled due to bad weather conditions, candidates must assume that their examinations will be conducted as originally scheduled;

(d) once an examination has started, it will continue for the full allotted time unless physical conditions in the examination centre are considered to be dangerous by the Centre Supervisor.
