Tests like IELTS and TOEFL are some of those English Language Proficiency tests which enable you to study in some other country in Best Colleges and Universities of the world.
IELTS is a very famous Test program that most students take but sometimes according the country guidelines and the conditions of college or university of your desire, you have to take TOEFL test to prove your English language skills. Before you go to take this test, here are some tips and guidelines that I collected from some International Students who have taken this TOEFL test and scored really good in it. So take a look at those tips and you may get some benefit from them.

Tips For College Students to Perform Better in TOEFL:

Understand the Test: Before you read anything else and go deeper into anything, first of all make sure that you have required information about the test itself. Browse the official website of TOEFL test and read all the information about the test to clear your doubts and to have a full understanding of the test. When you have basic idea of the test then you will have to go deeper into the test structure. For this, you can buy some books on TOEFL test or you can just search and find some sample tests online. Either way, browse through some sample tests to have a better understanding of the structure of test. Know the style of the test and make yourself familiar with it.
Take Some Sample Tests: This one may sound a little bit dumb to some people but I think it will really help you a lot. Because after taking some sample tests you will know where do you stand? You will know your current English Languages skills and then you can work to improve them. Otherwise, you may have some misconceptions about your specific skills like reading, writing or listening. Because when I was going to give the test, I had this misconception that I am good at speaking, while the results were totally the opposite. So, before believing in any of your skills, please first make sure that the test structure or style is accordingly. Because sometimes, you may have good speaking skills in Britain style but what if the interviewer will be from America or India? They will probably not going to say that you are good because for them you are not really so good. So, get to know that what kind of speaking or writing style is believed to be good in the test.
Practice on your Weaknesses: That was the whole idea of taking some sample tests before preparing or joining any institution. Now that you know in which fields of language you lack and you can work on these specific skills to improve yourself. In this way, you will be on your way to the improvement. The best way to improve any skills is by practicing. You should practice as much as you can and the results will surely come.
Get Some Help From College Teachers/Friends and Relatives: No matter on which side of earth you are living currently, chances are that you most probably have some friends or someone in your relatives who already taken the test and scored some good points. You should ask them for help. That will surely help you a lot because that advice will be coming from someone’s experience which he or she experienced in almost same situations as you. So, if you know someone in your friends circle or someone in your relatives, then don’t hesitate to ask him/her for help. If you are in your last days of some college or school then you can also ask for advice from councilors and staff in your college. You can seek some advice from teachers and professors of subjects or courses like English, Communication Skills or any general education courses like that. They might help you a lot or maybe they can suggest someone who can help you to get better scores in your TOEFL Test.
Those are some tips for scoring high in TOEFL. The main thing is just do practice on your weak skills and be confident and stress free on the day of test and that is all that you need to succeed in TOEFL.
