what is the score required for the speaking section of the TOEFL-iBT?
i checked with the Visascreen handbook, it stated there that total score must be 83 and 26 is needed for the speaking part. however, i've seen previous sites before which i cannot locate anymore, it said there that the total score must be 83 and the speaking part should have 23.. im not so sure what the required score really is.
To those who have applied for licensure at New Jersey and took the TOEFL-iBT, please tell me what is the score needed?
im quite bothered and sad coz i got a total of 96 but got 24 for the speaking part..
Only trust what is written on the Visa Screen Handbook. It is them that gives you the Visa Screen Cert. not those other sites and ICHP/CGFNS regularly update themselves.
Also, did you contact NJ and asked that the English proficiency exam be waived as you did go through a nursing course in PH using English as the medium of instruction and all main books are written in English.
I remember, someone (from PH as well) who replied to one of your previous posts and threads saying that he asked NJ to waive that req't and was granted one and suggested that to you.
I suggest you do the same and just take the IELTS for your visa screen certification, w/c we have always recommended over TOEFL because the speaking part is easier to pass compared to TOEFL.
