Competitive Exams

The TOEFL iBT stands for ‘Test of English as a Foreign Language - Internet-based test’. It is a standardized test to measure the English language ability of non-native speakers wishing to enroll in English-speaking universities. TOEFL is a trademark of the Educational Testing Service (ETS), a private non-profit organization, which designs and administers the tests. ETS issues official score reports which are sent independently to institutions and are valid for two years following the test.

National Board Dental Examinations have been developed to assist state boards in determining qualifications of dentists who seek licensure to practice dentistry. These examinations assess candidates' ability to understand important information from basic biomedical and dental sciences and also the ability to apply such information in a problem-solving context.
