TOPIK (Test of Proficiency in Korean) in Perth

TOPIK,(Test of Proficiency in Korean) is a Korean language test offered to foreigners in Korea and people studying Korean in other countries. TOPIK is administered by the Korea Institute of Curriculum and Evaluation.
The test was first conducted in 1997 with 2,274 candidates. Initially the test was held only once a year.[1] In 2009, 180,000 people took the test.
