TOEFL AT SIBAWAIH

Dear Toefl candidate,

Thank you for your interest in our school.
Here is some info about the iBT Toefl test.

  1. First you open an account or profile on www.ets.org/toefl.
  2. Then you buy a voucher from Sibawaih and pay the fees in local dinars if you do not have a credit card to pay ETS direct via your account in US dollars.
  3. Register for the test at the date and location of your choice.

Opening an account

To register for the test, you must first create a profile or account on www.ets.org/toefl . It is absolutely vital that you create such an account or profile because you will need it to register, to train online once, and to receive your Internet score after the test.
Here are the steps:
Open www.ets.org/toefl
You can see on the top right hand corner: Open my iBT account. Click.
A new page appears. Since you do not yet have an account, you click on NEW USER. Three pages will open: Fill each one carefully.

A couple of things you need to pay attention to:

  1. Make sure you use no accents for the ‘e’ or the ‘a’ or the ’u’ and no ‘ç’.
  2. For your address, do not translate ‘rue’ into ‘street’ or anything of the sort. Just write it the usual French way.
  3. For your password, a combination of capital letters, small letters and numbers and is required. I suggest the first three letters of your family name in CAPITAL LETTERS, the first three letters of your first name, also called ‘given name’ in small letters and the calendar year (or your year of birth) for the numbers. For me that would give something like BERkem2018.
  4. Very important: Make sure your family name (nom de famille) and your given name (prénom) as well as your date of birth match exactly what appears on the identification document you will present on test day.

How to pay for the test
The fees stand currently at US$205 or DZD46.000. But they may change when you register. Please check.
If you have access to a credit card in US$, you can use it to register. Otherwise, you choose voucher.
The voucher is a note with a number containing 16 digits that you feed into the appropriate slot as a final step of your registration for the test.
The voucher you can buy from Sibawaih Oran (041 83 18 90) or Sibawaih Tlemcen (043 27 45 45).
You can

  1. come and collect the voucher yourself, or
  1. send someone to collect the voucher on your behalf, or
  2. pay 46.000.00 dinars to SENOUCI BEREKSI Kemal Eddine CCP 169640 clé 51 and email a scanned copy of the receipt to the email below.

In this case, as soon as the money is paid into our account, we will send you a copy of the voucher via the email address you used to send us the CCP scanned copy of the receipt.
