In the previous post, we looked at the evaluation system of TOPIK essay section. If you remember I had left you with three model essays which were written by three different students in 25th TOPIK. Here in this post, we will see how the examiners evaluated and graded those papers. Analyze the evaluation charts properly and try to find why one essay got more marks than others. I hope it will help you make your TOPIK essay better and get some more marks. All the best…
Here is the essay question that came in beginner level of 25th TOPIK:
