Are you ready for changes in SAT, GRE, GMAT?

Starting this April, Indian students can register for the first-ever TOEFL MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) titled TOEFL Test Preparation: The Insider’s Guide. David Payne, vice president and COO of the Global Education Division at ETS, says, “This free six-week course is designed to benefit English language learners looking to improve their skills. The MOOC will launch in June. The interactive TOEFL test prep course covers English-language skills that universities, agencies and institutions are looking for in applicants. It will help students understand what they can do to achieve their best score. Students are offered a unique opportunity to explore the TOEFL test sections with experts who created the TOEFL test. Instructors will guide students through each section (reading, listening, speaking and writing) and walk through the types of questions students can expect.”

But we’re early on,” said best-selling author and millennial career expert Dan Schawbel. “More and more companies are looking outside of traditional degrees for talent.”
