Today is the day Topik’s results come out but a few days ago, I and my friends felt like a cat on hot bricks. Today, we counted down the clock until 1 pm in Vietnam which was 3pm in Korea. I had a class in the afternoon, so I had to check my Topik results at the University. The wifi in my University was so weak that I could not load the Topik website. Maybe there were too many people getting access to check the results, so the website loaded very slowly. I have tried many times, but I couldn’t load the website. It reminded of my university’s website when students have to register for class online. Then after about 45 minutes, I finally managed to load the Topik exam.
You can click on this link to check your Topik result. Type your application number in the box “수험번호” and date of birth in the box “생년월일”, then you click the button “조화하기”.
And this is my result for Topik 32 which took place on October 20, 2013.
I am extremely happy when I know that I pass Topik 4 (Intermediate 2), but at the moment later, I feel a little bit disappointed because I didn’t try my best to do the test. I would have more higher scores if I concentrated and was not stressed due to the time. As you can see from my Topik exam last year in October. I made no progress on Vocabulary/ Grammar and Reading skill. I was really disappointed at myself.
The only progress I have made is the writing and listening skill. After 28th Topik exam, I realized my weakness is the writing and listening skill, so I spent 1 year brushing up on those skills. Until now, I have written over 100 entries of diary to practice Korean. I also watch Korean dramas a lot to practice listening skill. Writing Korean diary and watching Korean dramas take a lot of time, so I didn’t have time for learning by heart any more vocabulary or reading any Korean articles, and of course I did not have much time to practice speaking skill. I think it is high time to balance all the skills and start a new plan of studying Korean.
The Topik exam just reflects a part of your Korean level so that you can enhance your strength and minimize the weakness. If you don’t pass the Topik exam this time, you shouldn’t be too upset. You just need to learn the experience and practice more. I have to take the Topik intermediate exam twice until I can get Topik 4. I hope that we can continue to learn Korean with all of our passion^^
