The final put up I wrote was about taking the examination and now I’m writing about my outcomes. This weblog is amassing digital mud ):
It’s attention-grabbing how the method of getting outcomes has advanced through the years, and actually I can’t inform if it’s for higher or worse. I nonetheless recall these days the place it was merely unattainable to test outcomes on a Mac gadget between the web site insists on IE (lol) and you have to obtain (what’s that known as once more?) a script / program / certificates or sth for it to work. Properly, in these days, smartphones was probably not a factor but. However it was very quick, and solely on the uncommon event would the positioning be down, for a jiffy, at 3pm KST. However nonetheless it was like an instantaneous factor. AND they put up the bodily cert to you.
Someplace down the highway, the recognition of Hallyu and its ripple results led to a surge of TOPIK takers which overwhelmed the poor system. Sooner or later, there was a waiting-room system put in, much like these the place you camp for live performance tix of the most important stars. TOPIK is a megastar certainly, as a result of lately, it’s unattainable to test your outcomes at 3pm KST. It’s not even an hour’s wait or one thing, it’s like HOURS AND HOURS.
I used to be fairly entertained trying up the related social media hashtags and seeing folks complain about how there are THIRTY THOUSAND folks within the queue earlier than them. Discuss megastars.
This time spherical, I believed I used to be already erring on the secure facet after I checked it about 6 hours after the discharge time and yeah there have been 1000 folks in entrance and after ready for the bar to inch ahead, for a full hour, the positioning crashed once more when it was lastly my flip. lol.
So I ended up checking my outcomes at 230am within the morning, about 12 hours after outcomes launch. Yeah and it was quick. Okay, so all good. The excellent news is that someplace someday, they’d upgraded their system so it’s attainable to test on Safari on an iPhone. However I didn’t handle to obtain the TOPIK certificates on the telephone, so boo. Oh in case you’re questioning, I used to be up at 230am to not test outcomes.
So time for outcomes!
This may been my worst rating shortly. To assume I felt slightly assured for the writing heh.
However I at all times take TOPIK outcomes with a pinch of salt, so I nonetheless don’t assume I’ve in any manner turn into worse in writing / listening / writing Korean. I’m horrible at talking Korean as of late too, that I might acknowledge.
Hope everybody bought the outcomes you’ve been aiming for!! xoxo
