The TOEFL Bulletin was updated sometime this month.  Normally I would list the line-by-line changes here, but those appear too numerous to list.  The policy changes, meanwhile, are just what has already been discussed here already.  Let me know, though, if there is something you want me to dig into.  This edition of the bulletin is valid until June 2020.  Here’s a link.

One thing that did catch my eye is that score review still takes up to three weeks. While students have reported getting those results really quickly (in three days) I guess ETS doesn’t want to make any official promises.

Students can now take the TOEFL every single week. In the past, they could take it only once every two weeks, but ETS has changed this policy. There were rumors of this change last month, and now it is official. You can find the details in the most recent version of the TOEFL Bulletin.

It says: “There is no limit to the number of times you can take the test, but you cannot take it more than once in a 3-day period. If you already have a test appointment, you cannot register for another test date that is within 3 days of your existing appointment. “

Note the the old version of the bulletin referred to a “12-day” period.

I think this is a positive change, however it will still take about two weeks for scores to be reported. This means, of course, that you might register for a sitting that is not actually required.
