TOEFL Registration in Nigeria: Requirements, Dates, Centres & Guidelines

The TOEFL is written in different cities and states in Nigeria.

TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), is an assessment of one’s ability to use and comprehend the English language in a scholastic setting. The test is outlined and regulated by Educational Testing Service (ETS) and was created to assess the English dialect capability for non-local speakers wishing to learn at U.S. colleges. It has turned into a confirmation requirement for non-local English speakers at numerous English-speaking schools. Furthermore, institutional parastatals, for example, government offices, permitting bodies, organizations, or grant projects may require this test. A TOEFL score is legitimate for a long time and after that will never again be authoritatively announced.
