TOEIC in the UK
TOEIC stands for Test of English for International Communication. It is an internationally accredited English proficiency exam, designed by ETS (Education Testing Services). The TOEIC exam is globally recognized and assesses a person’s English language proficiency.
TOEIC is often used by people for employment since TOEIC deals with English as it is used in the business world. TOEIC assesses your English on a scale that is based on the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) levels A1 – B2: elementary to upper-intermediate levels. Companies of all sizes and business types recognize TOEIC results as valid proof of English language skills.
We’re going to look at taking the TOEIC exam in the UK, so we’ll talk about things such as registration, how to find exam dates and times, how results will be received and the fee for a TOEIC exam. Also, we’ll outline how GlobalExam can prepare you for the TOEIC exam.
Where can I take the test in the UK?
- Unfortunately, ETS is not offering TOEIC exams (or any other exam) in the UK at present. According to the ETS website, you should contact the Paris exam centre if you are in the UK and wish to take a TOEIC exam. The contact information is shown below:
- ETS Global – France Office
43-45, rue Taitbout
75009 Paris, France
Dates, Prices, Results and Fees
You can register online with the exam center, so you don’t have to hop on a plane and go to Paris just now. Make sure you register for the appropriate TOEIC exam as ETS has many different language exams, and there are different versions of TOEIC: TOEIC L&R (listening and reading), TOEIC S&W (speaking and writing), TOEIC Bridge and TOEIC 4 Skills (listening, reading, writing and speaking).
Remember that you will need to make payment online since you are in the UK and the exam centre is in Paris so debit, credit card, etc. is probably your best option for payment. You need to provide an official form of ID; you scan your ID and send it as a pdf normally, but check with the exam centre to be sure. If you are coming from the UK, then your passport will work well. You must bring official ID on the exam day since you could be denied admittance to the TOEIC exam without proper identification.
The fee varies, depending on the particular version of TOEIC that you want to sit for. You should always verify fees with the exam centre’s website; fees will change from time to time. The TOEIC Listening and Reading test is approximately €125 at the moment. For fees for the TOEIC 4 Skills and TOEIC Speaking and Writing, check with the exam centre in Paris.
Information for the times and dates of upcoming TOEIC exams can be found on the test centre’s website.
