We also hope that the merit scholarship announced for Chitkara University students by ETS will motivate them to give their best in their academic journey"
ETS has built a strong network of TOEFL Market Ambassadors in the Punjab, with nearly 1000 ambassadors in the region. ETS also operates test centers in Punjab, spread across all major cities of Bathinda, Jalandhar, Patiala, Ludhiana, Amritsar, and Chandigarh.
The enhanced version of TOEFL has been implemented since July 26, 2023, making it the shortest amongst three most popular English Proficiency tests.
For students planning to pursue education in an English-speaking country, TOEFL iBT holds immense significance as it serves as an important piece of their admissions portfolio. It provides an evaluation of English language proficiency and assesses the ability to comprehend English across all communication skills - listening, reading, speaking and writing.
