The TOEFL is an effective exam because it is designed to evaluate the ability to synthesize language skills for functional communication. Although each TOEFL section (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) has a primary focus, there are exercises that draw on at least two of these areas throughout the test. Students who receive high scores on the TOEFL can be confident in their ability to succeed in university coursework and conduct their everyday lives on university campuses. Minimum TOEFL scores can vary quite a bit from university to university, but selective schools almost always expect sectional and composite scores at the upper end of the range. For most institutions, a total score of 100 and sectional scores of 25 each are high enough to meet divisional and departmental standards. Test-takers must, however, make sure that they have a clear understanding of their programs' specific requirements, which may be even higher (especially for teaching assistants). Furthermore, there are a few outliers (such as Princeton and Oxford) that expect scores well in excess of 100.
