    Hi. I missed the deadline for the last TOPIK test of this war because I was abroad during the registration period. When is the first TOPIK test of 2013 please? I just want to know what date to aim for.

    @Anonymous You can take whichever level you want.. there is no such rule…
    @Anonymous You can take Beg. and Int the same day… there is a big gap between the difficulty levels of beg and int… I would suggest you to go through previous papers first to get an idea…

    Has anyone tried taking two tests in one day? I feel I am probably around level 2 or 3, so I was thinking of doing beg. and int. How difficult is it?

  6. Anonymous says

    Heard a rumour that one can only take the advanced test if he/she has taken the beginner and intermediate? This is false, right? I’ve never taken the TOPIK, and I want to take the advanced one the first time.

    There is no centre of Korean language in Pune as far as I know.. You will have to contact Korean Embassy in Delhi and register there.. You can sit in the exam either in Delhi or Chennai
