TOEIC® Listening & Reading Test
The TOEIC test is not the kind of test that you “pass” or “fail”. Instead, they are shown as a score from 5 to 495 for the Listening Section and 5 to 495 for the Reading Section, for a total score of 10 to 990 (in steps of five points). This score is not your raw score, or the number of correct answers. It is a scaled score, calculated using a statistical processing method called “equating.”
The TOEIC test scores you will receive are determined by the number of questions you answer correctly. There is no penalty for wrong answers, so we recommend you answer every question, even if you are not sure of the answer. In the Reading Section in particular, you need to watch the time so you can complete all the questions on your answer sheet.
In addition to your score, please check your Score Descriptors (per-level assessment) and Abilities Measured (percentage of correct answers per skill).
See below for details on the test results format.
