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“):
The slideshow has been prepared for the 31st TOPIK on July 21, 2013, but should be applicable for all following tests as well (unless they change things dramatically) with minor adjustments:
- The 31st TOPIK is only offered in Korea. You should pick your country to take the test in for TOPIK 32.
- Please note the following regulation changes that will take effect after the 31st TOPIK on July 21, 2013.
