Revised TOEFL Paper-delivered Test

Monday, April 16 2018

The Education Testing Service (ETS) announced that the Revised TOEFL Paper-delivered Test replaced the TOEFL paper based test (TOEFL PBT) on 14 October 2017.  The Revised TOEFL Paper-delivered Test has only three components – reading, listening and writing.  Speaking is not part of the revised test. See: https://www.ets.org/s/toefl/pdf/npbt-communication-score-recipients.pdf.

The Deed of Agreement between Commonwealth of Australia and ETS requires that a service provider’s test measures all four English language skills, including reading, writing, listening and speaking. In light of this, the Department can no longer accept the Revised TOEFL Paper-delivered Test results as part of the student visa application.
