Those who have not requested a refund for the 69th TOPIK will be considered to take the 70th TOPIK scheduled on July 12, 2020.
The postponement of TOPIK in the Philippines came a few weeks earlier than the worldwide cancellation of TOPIK in 64 countries, including in Seoul, which was announced May 14. According to a report by The Korea Times, Taiwan will be the only country to continue its tests scheduled on May 24 in three cities (Taipei, Kaohsiung and Taichung) because of their successful pandemic response.
Information about refunds and additional application schedules will be posted soon on KCC’s website.
