I am a regular reader of HSB from past 9 months and found your website immensely useful while preparing for GRE / TOEFL.
My problem is that the date of birth shown in my TOEFL account is wrong. When I created my TOEFL account I entered my DOB wrong. (instead of 11 Oct 88 I entered 10 Oct 88). I cannot change/edit it now.
I didnt notice it till my date of exam.
The examiner showed me my mistake but allowed me to appear for the exam. I scored 107 marks which is pretty good I guess. Now I am worried that later I may face problem while applying for college admission. Should I contact TOEFL officials or should I leave this matter here only.
I am concerned that if I contact TOEFL authorities they may delete/block my account and I will have to appear/ prepare again for TOEFL. I dont want to appear for the same exam again and again! – Saurabh.
Wrong Date of Birth in TOEFL
- Did they correct your date of birth in TOEFL record at test center?
If date of birth is not corrected, then you can contact ETS/TOEFL.
I believe you can fax them your copy of passport for ETS to edit your record. Post your comment below after you follow-up with ETS customer service.
