TOEFL is an English proficiency test and is a must for most USA Colleges. All Indian students who have done their schooling in India are recommended to take the exam. The Test of English as a Foreign Language, or TOEFL as it is more popularly referred as, is compulsory for all international students for admissions to most of the good US universities. Sometimes, it is even required at the visa stage. However, sometimes when students have done English at HL (high level) during their IB or A-Levels curriculum can be exempted from taking the test but again this depends on the university that the student is applying to.
