  5. soumya says

    Hi satish as i see the test dates i have barely two months to prepare…….in two months can i pass level2 or i should just apply for level1……my korean proficiency is very basic….please let me know ASAP.

    • says

      As level 1 & 2 are the same test you don’t need to prepare for them separately.. just aim for level 2 and even if are not able to get it, you will get level 1..

      • says

        안녕하습니까? 선생님. 우리는 캄보디아 사람입니다. 이 시험을 하고 싶은데 어떻께 하면 시험할까요? 줌 알려 주세요. 지금은 난 캄보디아에서 살았어요.예, 우리 한국 시험을 좋은 시험 받으면 외국나라에 공부하면돼요? 그리고 뭐가 빌요 해요? 미한해요 제가 한국어 조금 잘해서 조금 틀리면 정말 미안합니다..수고하십시오. 갑사합니다.

  8. md.iqramul islam says

    I am from Bangladesh and I live in Korea from 28th October of 2008. May I know, when and from where I can apply for TOPIK exam?

    • TOPIK GUIDE says

      Next TOPIK will be in July and we will notify here when the registrations start. Keep checking our website or facebook page.

  9. Ernie W says


    I heard that the validity of TOPIK is 2 years.
    What is that suppose to mean? I understand that for example, if I take TOPIK in order to apply for any Korea University, the validity might be an issue.
    But if I plan to take TOPIK for applying a job, would the validity become an issue? I mean, we can still use the TOPIK certificate to apply a job even after that 2 years, right?
    Can you please let me be more clear about this?
    Thanks in advance! :)

  10. Asghar says

          • TOPIK GUIDE says

            Ofcourse you can take TOPIK in Korea. There is no specific visa for TOPIK; you can visit on any visa (ex: tourist/work/business) and take the test here.
            For more details about the test check this post and also have a look at past papers. You will get the idea. All the Best.

  12. Jia Min says

    Thanks for the info! By the way I just took my intermediate test today, and I heard other students talking about TOPIK test structure going to be changed next year, do you know anything about this? Something about intermediate and advanced level being combined into one test?

    • TOPIK GUIDE says

      There is no official information about it yet. I will let you know on this website and on our facebook page if any big structural change is introduced in the test. :)

      • Jia Min says

        Ok, thanks a lot! By the way, the “Download 32nd TOPIK test paper” link doesn’t seem to be working, I can’t open the post, be it on mobile or laptop…
