TOEFL Equivalency Table

 

Do you find all of the different English language test scores confusing?  Do you have trouble comparing a TOEIC score to a TOEFL score?  Well, that's understandable because there are a number of different language tests and they all have different systems.  Even the TOEFL Paper Based Test, TOEFL Computer Based Test (TOEFL CBT), and TOEFL Internet Based Test (TOEFL iBT) all have different scoring schemes.  

The table below shows comparisons between various test scores and level systems (like TOEIC, TOEFL and IELTS) and the VEC level system.  Use this table to compare your own score or VEC level with the approximate equivalent score of another test.
