The new TOEIC listening and reading exam consists of seven parts:
Listening component: 4 parts (100 questions)
Part 1: Photographs –> 10 questions
In this part, you will be given ten pictures with their corresponding questions. Each question will be a multiple choice question. You will hear four statements about the picture and you must mark the answer that corresponds best to the statement heard.
Part 2: Question-Response –> 30 questions
In this part, you will hear a question and a statement and three responses spoken in English. You must select the correct response.
For ex, you will hear the following question and the three responses as follows:
Do you have the time?
a. I’m sorry, I forgot to wear my watch this morning
b. It is at home
c. No, I left it in my office
The correct answer is ‘a’, I’m sorry, I forgot to wear my watch this morning
Part 3: Short conversations –> 30 questions
In this part, you will hear some conversations between people. You will be asked to answer three questions pertaining to the conversation. Each question will be a multiple-choice question.
Part 4: Short talks –> 30 questions
In this part, you will hear a short talk given a single speaker. You will be asked to answer three questions pertaining to the talk. Each question will be a multiple-choice question.
Reading component: 3 parts
Part 5: Incomplete sentences –> 40 questions
A word or phrase will be missing from the sentences given. You have to identify the correct word or phrase from the options provided.
Part 6: Text completion –> 12 questions
A text will be provided (an email, a letter, etc) with word(s) or phrase(s) missing from the text. You will have to identify the correct word or phrase from the options provided.
Part 7: Reading comprehension (single and double passages) –> 38 questions
This part is a traditional reading comprehension test where you have to read one passage and choose the correct answer from the options. A double passage comprehension means that you will either have a passage within a passage (for ex, a table and an explanatory note) or two passages (for ex, a letter and a response to the letter).
While the listening component will really test your listening skills, the reading component will test your grammar and vocabulary in parts 5 and 6, concentrating fully on your reading skills in part 7.
