We have heard stories about students using agents to take TOEFL Exam.
Also, US consulates asking students to take TOEFL test (or similar) during visa interview or asking what kind of question appeared in TOEFL exam.
This article might create fear among those students who paid TOEFL agents and have fake TOEFL report card. Also, it might deter someone from doing so in the future.
Following comment was posed at F1 Visa Rejected because of High TOEFL and Low GRE Score.
TOEFL via Proxy Agent
ppl who are thinking to make write der TOEFL exam by some other agent PLZZ drop dat idea(especially AP ppl as it very common in hyderabad ). Consulate ppl are very strict at da toefl score now plzz go through thiss
I applied for VISA at Chennai consulate last week, but i got my VISA got rejected.
I have taken the TOEFL exam by paying to some agent. The consulate people came to know this and rejected my VISA.
They have taken my I20 and TOEFL score card. And they also taken a statement from me that i indulged in this,
1. Is this incident will have any consequences on my future application to US either for F1 or H1 VISA’s . If i retake TOEFL on my own nd apply for spring 2012, r der any chances.
2.And US nd Canada consulates are in any way related and canada consulate in any way able to know abt this incident with my passport number ?
Actually I had a good GRE score of 1210 with admission in to Arizona State University with an aggregate of 74% and no backlogs but my hard luck is they came to know abt this. Even a 85-90 will suffice for the VISA they dnt expect high toefl score soo plzz do go through for back doorr
F1 Visa Rejected
What do you mean by “my hard luck is they came to know abt this”.
More student who do TOEFL proxy should be caught and denied visa.
Did someone else took GRE for you?
TOEFL proxies will learn about US Consulates rejecting visa, they will improvise their method by scoring low on TOEFL based on GRE Score.
Most surprising part of the above comment is “it is very common in hyderabad”
Is TOEFL iBT exam tough to even score atleast 78?
If you cannot score some 80 in TOEFL, then learn from TOEFL study tips to score 114.
Above student got caught. But, many might have been lucky. Thanks for sharing the experience, but what you did is totally wrong.
Question to readers
- Do you think such students should be allowed to study in US.
- If such person applies for H1, can visa be given to them in future?
