ETS Global uses two different types of scoring methods depending on the test format:
- human scoring for open-question tests
- automated scoring for multiple-choice test questions

Score Reports are only sent by post and are available on your online account. Scores will not be communicated by phone, email nor fax.
The Score Report is the official document acknowledging your English proficiency. It is included in the price of the test.
You will receive a Certificate of Achievement upon request. This document is presented as a diploma featuring the name of the test taker and its test score.
ETS tests should not be considered as “pass-or-fail” tests. Our tests ensure test takers to reliably and objectively demonstrate their English skills. Institutions establish their own English proficiency selection criteria by setting a minimum TOEIC or TOEFL score to reach, as not all positions or academic programmes require the same English proficiency level. Our tests are used as a scale to help institutions compare fairly the level of each candidate.
We invite you to contact your institution/company to find out about the required TOEIC/TOEFL score.
Your results will vary depending on the number of questions you will have answered. You will not be penalised for answering questions wrong. Try to answer every question to the best of your ability.
Because English-language skills may improve or decline over time, ETS Global and Representatives will re-issue and confirm score results for 2 years after taking the test.
The online display of scores on the ETS Global account depends on the country where the candidate took the test. This applies to all countries in Europe, Africa and Middle East with the exception of the countries listed below:
- Islamic Republic of Iran
- Occupied Palestinian Territory
- Saudi Arabia
- United Arab Emirates
- Czech Republic
You would need to provide a scanned copy of the score report in question by email.
We will do our best to come back to you with an answer within 7 days from your request.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, our response time is currently delayed. We will work on your inquiry and try to come back to you as soon as possible.
