Welcome to part 2 of the Topik 101: Frequently Asked Questions. If you haven't read part 1, click here to read it first. Without further redo, let's answer more questions about Topik.
1. Can I wear a watch to the exam?
Normal digital, analogue, and non-smart watches are allowed. Electronic gadgets are prohibited in the exam hall (this includes the Apple Watch and all the other smartwatches)
2. What should I wear to the exam?
Please wear proper and decent attire.
3. Can I bring my own pen?
You may only use the pen provided for the exam.
The pen looks something like this.
4. Do I need to fill in my Korean name on the exam paper?
Not necessary, you are only required to fill in your English name (the same name on your ID and application form).
5. What do I do if I realised I made a mistake while answering the exam?
You may request the correction tape from the invigilators and cover the mistake with it. Do not cross out the mistake because the OMR answer sheet will be scanned by machines so if there are two answers detected for the same question, there will be zero points for that question.
6. Will there be rough papers for drafts? Can I bring my own? (For Topik 2)
No, loose papers are not provided and you are not allowed to bring your own to the exam.
7. Can I submit the paper before the end of the exam?
No. You are not allowed to submit your paper or leave the exam hall before the exam ends.
8. Can leave the exam hall with the question paper?
No. Please hand in the question paper together with the answer booklet to the invigilators. Leaving the exam hall with the question paper is against the exam rules and you will be disqualified from the exam.
So, that's all for part 2. Do let us know if you have any other further questions. Leave them in the comments and I will reply with what I know or maybe write a part 3 if there are a lot of questions to be answered. Thank you so much for reading this.
