TOEIC: to Take or Not to Take

The English graduation benchmark policy has been executed in most universities in Taiwan since the Ministry of Education began implementing the policy in 2003. Most universities accept the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) score as proof of their students’ English proficiency, and require their students to achieve the TOEIC benchmark before graduation. At present, more than 90% of universities in Taiwan have set their own TOEIC benchmark standard.
