How to register for the TOPIK Test

So you want to register for the TOPIK? The above PPT was put together with the specific purpose of helping you navigate the TOPIK website, join it, and register for the TOPIK test, even with minimal Korean ability.

Oh, and one more thing I forgot to include in the original PPT. After paying via ATM, you’ll get a confirmation email that looks something like the one below. You can also print a receipt using the button just to the right of the 40,000원 fee (it says “영수증 출력“):

    1. You’re right. It’s Korea: ONLY Windows, ONLY Internet Explorer, no exceptions (unfortunately). They really need to join us in this decade…

      So, I had to do mine from my work computer. That was no problem. Most school computers are still running Windows XP and IE6 (unless they’ve updated).
