TOEFL exam registration in Nigeria 2019
The process of online registration is not tough, but you need to be very attentive to details. There’s a guide available on the official website of the exam, and you can check it out before you start the application. You need to remember that the system may require something from you, so it’s better to start the registration well prepared.
For instance, you may be asked to provide the name (or names) of up to four institutions that can receive the results of your test. It’s what it means; you need to give names of institutions, not yourself. Then, of course, the system will ask you how you want to receive the test results (printed out or a digital copy only). Finally, you will need to complete the registration with the payment.
In order to make the registration process safe and comfortable for you, there are several essential rules to keep in mind. First, you should not leave the registration page and browse something else in the same tab. Do not use any characters with accent marks, like á, é, ö, and others. The system doesn’t accept such characters. However, if you have them in your name stated in your ID, you can get registered in the testing centre.
For safety, never double-click anything that you see in front of you, especially when submitting the payment.
The registration process should be completed in advance. At best, it should be finished several months before the examination because this will guarantee you a seat on the date that’s the most suitable to you.
The official website also offers great helpful options that can assist applicants to get prepared better. There are special TOEFL applications, which you can install in your smartphone and take with you wherever you want, samplers, which you can receive for free when you get registered on the website, guides, manuals, useful recommendations, and so on.
Be very attentive when on the registration page. There you can see a lot of information that will seem strange to you. First, give attention to the announcement at the bottom of the login page.
If you still have no profile on the website, fill out all the boxes that are marked with asterisks. The ones without this mark are optional; you can leave them empty if you wish. The boxes where you need to insert your name are also marked, you need to write your name exactly as it’s written in your identity documents.
Proceed to profile creation and follow all the instructions the system gives you. For more security, you will need to choose a challenge question from the options and provide the system with the answer.
In case you already have a profile, everything you need to do is enter it as usual with the help of your password and login. Then, proceed to “Register for a Test” and start your registration. Choose the centre that’s located closest to you, choose a suitable exam date for yourself and confirm your registration.
You need to keep in mind the fact that the registration has a time limit. You will have only 20 minutes to complete it. It includes the score recipients, the reporting preference, order confirmation, and your payment.
You can select the most suitable payment method and complete your payment. After you receive the system notification of your payment, you'll have access to the payment receipt. Also, you need to print out the address of the test centre and the date of your test.
