Didn't take it oo. At first it was a requirement but later the school waived it. I ended up applying for another school that require me to take TOEFL. Keep me posted. Wish you the best.

I couldn't take it again that day. I did it yesterday, got my result today and made 125. Way above the school's cut off. I know I'm safe.


I initially wanted to take the TOEFL, but after seeing the cost, I had to look for a cheaper alternative which was Duolingo and the school accepts it.


When are you taking the TOEFL?

How difficult it is depends on the proficiency of the person taking it. However I believe that for an average native speaker, it's quite easy.


Have you taken the practice test? It should give you a rough estimate of how your actual result would be. Take it as many times as possible to familiarize yourself with the questions.

Good luck. Let me know how it goes

Thank you

Please which website can I get DuoLingo practice tests? I need to practise seriously.

What is the level of difficulty? Is one week okay for a good preparation to get a little above 100, which is the benchmark of my proposed school?

1 week is enough to prepare. As long as you have an average understanding of the English Language, getting over 100 shouldn't be difficult.

You just need to familiarize yourself with how they set their questions that's all.

And for the practice test, you have to create an account with your email to take it. You can take as much as you want to

Thank you very much for your prompt response.

How do I register for the test?

It seems only visa cards are allowed for the online payment? I have a ZENITH visa card.

All you need to do is create an account, you'll see how you're supposed to do it.

I don't really know which one is accepted or not. I tried to pay with fidelity visa but it didn't work.

I later used a friend's uba MasterCard

Have you tried to pay before and it didn’t go through?
Re: Duolingo For International Students by nues012(m): 8:18am On May 12
The comments on duolingo were really helpful. I am going to write my duolingo exam tomorrow.

But I have a question, can one use this exam result for all universities in America? and does it have expiry date?

I have a major problem, I was told to submit copy of my passport but immigration office hasn’t given me yet. I hope that won’t hinder me from getting admission?
