The study visa rules have been changed by the government now. One of the tests, which has now been discontinued is the TOEFL(paper-based test). Ever since changes were made to this test, the Department of Home Affairs didn’t consider it sufficient to check the English language skills of the students. That’s why its no longer in use for granting study visas to students. This test has been discontinued as a legitimate measure for testing English proficiency since 27th May 2018. With the changes in this test, it did not contain any “speaking” section any longer.
So, when this section was removed from the test, the Department of Home Affairs felt that this test was no longer adequate to make sure that the applicants could be tested for their speaking skills in English.
However, the TOEFL(internet based test) is still acceptable for granting a student visa.
