Hi Touhi

The raw scores of the TOEFL pbt are converted to a special TOEFL scale using a special statistical conversion system, and I don’t think TOEFL publishes this. I also think that some questions may carry more weight than others.

As far as I know, a raw score between about 1 and 10 (my approximation) will result in a reported TOEFL score of 31, and then higher raw scores will be scaled accordingly – up to a maximum of 67 or 68 on each section of the test.

Rather than worry too much about the conversion of your raw scores, I would recommend focusing on getting more of the questions right. Analyze what you’ve gotten wrong and then try to improve specifically in those areas.

By the way, there is no such word in English as “pleej”, and you should have written “some one” as one word: “someone”.

Good luck with your last-minute preparation, and good luck on August 16th.
