walk in registration??? means dont have to online register to book place???

Nope. It is NOT an added advantage. It is only an added advantage given that you did very badly in SAT and very well in ACT.

What I meant by walk-in registration is that you just have to phone the person in charge at ISKL and give him your name (at least this is what I did last time). Then, on the test day, bring your ID to the college and that's all. I don't know anything about online registration but ACT is a new admission test and it is not that ubiquitous. I think online registration is only for those who live in the US. By the way, you have to buy a cheque or a money order that is withdrawable in the US.(Don't worry because the registration fee for ACT is about 30 percent less expensive than that of SAT)

Well, I am simply interested to know the opinions of Malaysian students regarding this.

Haven't been here for quite some time. Almost a year to be exact.

Hopefully freshers going US this year can make something even better than last year.

Ciaoz.

What is the TOEFL test like?

The test has 3 sections, plus a 30-minute writing test (Test of Written English), which is required of everyone who takes the paper-based test. It takes about 3-1/2 hours. There is no scheduled break.


What am I tested on in each section?

Listening Comprehension measures the ability to understand English as it is spoken in North America.
Structure and Written Expression measures the ability to recognize language that is appropriate for standard written English.
Reading Comprehension measures the ability to understand non-technical reading material.
Writing measures the ability to write in English on an assigned topic.
