The common misconception about the TOEFL exam is that a higher score on the TOEFL exam increases chances of admission to a university. However, you need to score above the minimum required score and the university considers its requirement met. A higher score doesn’t necessarily boost chances, but if you are unable to score the minimum score your application will most certainly declined.
The total score of TOEFL is mentioned out 120 as well as individual section scores are reported. More than 9000 institutes are now accepting TOEFL score as a part of their admission process. Usually a score over 95 is considered as very good score and majority of the reputed colleges set a cutoff at that score level.
