I would say iBT because it's done on the computer. I think most TOEFL centers offer iBT testing. It's convenient, efficient and it's done in quite a comfortable setting. For the speaking section, you just have to speak into the headset's microphone and it will be recorded.

Thanks, ngai.

How about PBT? Is it easier to score?

Erm, that I am not sure. The difficulty of the questions should be the same. I guess it depends on the person. Like for example you may feel more comfortable writing than typing. Then maybe PBT is for you. Either than that, there are no major differences really.

Okay, then I encourage to attempt the PBT. Do check out the test centers and testing dates that are available. Register early, sit early and prepare the best you can! That way, you will have a lot of time to see if you are satisfied with your scores or if you plan to switch to iBT.

Try searching online first next time:

There are generally no exams besides SAT/TOEFL/ACT for US college admissions.

As for interviews, only a handful of colleges/universities conduct interviews in Malaysia, e.g. Yale, Harvard, Cornell, Rice, UPenn etc. The interviews are NOT the same as the interviews for JPA scholarship. Interviews for US college admissions are meant for you to find out more about the school as well, besides for the interviewer (typically an alum of the school) to get to know what you have to offer to the school besides what's already on paper (i.e. besides your grades, your co-cu etc).
