TOEIC Bridge® Listening & Reading Tests
Frequently Asked Questions
The TOEIC Bridge Listening & Reading Tests measure two English-language skills, listening and reading, for beginning to lower-intermediate learners. There are 100 questions to answer in approximately one hour in Listening (approximately 25 minutes, 50 questions) and Reading (35 minutes, 50 questions). The tests use optically-scanned answer sheets.
Test results are shown as a score from 15 to 50 (in one-point increments) for each section, for a total score of 30 to 100. See TOEIC Bridge Listening & Reading Tests for details.
The TOEIC Bridge Speaking & Writing Tests are held separately. The application, testing method, and test schedules are all different, and the test results are issued separately.
