What is TOPIK?
TOPIK stands for “Test Of Proficiency In Korean” and it is a test for overseas Koreans and foreigners who do not speak Korean as their mother tongue. Once you take the TOPIK test and get the results, your test score is valid for 2 years after the announcement of exam results.
How does the grade system work?
There are two level in TOPIK: Level 1 (basic) and Level 2 (intermediate/advanced). You can choose whether to take the Level 1 test or the Level 2 test, and depending on the test score you get, your “grade” will be decided. (In TOPIK 2, you get Grade 6, the highest one, if you get over 230 points, Grade 5 if you get over 190 points, Grade 4 for over 150 points, and Grade 3 for over 120 points. In TOPIK 1, you get Grade 2 if you get over 140 points, and Grade 1, the lowest one, if you get over 80 points.)
