According to a recent webinar, the TOEFL iBT Home Edition, which was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, is currently accepted by more than 11,000 universities and organisations worldwide. Delegates present in the webinar heard that the new test would be of specific use for Indian students going abroad for higher education.

The home edition of TOEFL iBT was introduced to let candidates take the English proficiency test from their home without worrying about their safety.

Hampton added that universities as of yet have not registered any difference in the performance of students in the test.

Many institutions around the world have accepted this new edition of the test and assisted in making TOEFL’s mission a reality. They have also realised that both the home and test centre version are the same, Hampton said.

She further highlighted that students from India have been using TOEFL scores to apply and study at US universities for as long as the test has been launched. There are generations of Indians who have taken the TOEFL and studied abroad. It is, hence, important for the test to be available for them, whether they are studying in the US or any other country.
