Analysis of the TOEFL Test Improvements for 2020
Simply put, ETS is making it much easier for you to take and re-take the TOEFL test. However, do not be tempted to fall for this gimmick. To illustrate, if you take the TOEFL and get a low score, do not believe that retaking the test a week later will help you reach your target scores. Instead, you must look at your score report to figure out what language problems you need to solve. Then, you must practice in those areas BEFORE you register to take the TOEFL test.
