    Hi, Karthi,
    Welcome to the forum.
    It depends. To me, it's rather tough. Actually, I don't need to take it, but I did a few training tests, just to see my level.
    Texts for reading comprehension are all scientific-like, there are, it seems, 5 or 6. Listening was sometimes difficult, because you have to remember all the details.

    Best wishes.

    Hi, Karthi. Humble is right. It is a tough exam in the sense that it is 'pitched' ('aimed at') at advanced students. However, to calm your heart, I'll add a note: you don't pass or fail the TOEFL. It is designed to provide a score that tells others how good your English is. So, you pay your bucks. You sit the exam. You get a score . . . then you compare that score with the TOEFL scores that institutions require you to have to gain admission.

    There are lots of good TOEFL-preparation texts available. Have a look at one, and you'll see the level of complexity that you'll be dealing with.

    Enjoy
