A TOEFL score is usually considered as a criterion for rejection rather than for selection. Universities spell out a minimum score as a mandatory requirement for students coming from non-English speaking countries since English is the language of communication in the US. If you meet this eligibility requirement, your application is passed on to the next stage of the selection procedure. Sometimes meeting this cut off score is enough for the school to feel confident about your English skills, but there are cases where it is recommended that you score higher than the cut-off score to improve your chances of being admitted. Some schools are more accommodating and flexible and ask for alternative requirements if you fail to meet their TOEFL cut-off score. Hence, before you begin studying for the TOEFL, it’s a good idea to know the score that you need to achieve.
