To TOPIK, or not to TOPIK?

Tomorrow’s the deadline for the 22nd TOPIK application. And I’m still holding a blank application form. I’m still torn between taking and not taking it.

Although I would really love to take it this coming April, I really think that I’m not ready for the 중급 level yet. I’m still clueless with most of the first questions on previous 중급 exams that I opened.

I’m thinking that I could just try and take it – just for the experience of taking it. I could also use it as an excuse to study more Korean. But really, I only have 2 weeks to review for it. No scratch that, I’m not going to review, I’m going to STUDY! Finals is just around the corner and I still have 3 major papers to finish. I won’t be able to study any TOPIK exams until the finals are over. And that leaves me just 2 weeks. Plus the TOPIK day is going to be my birthday. I don’t think I want to stress myself too much on that day.

Also, I want to take the 중급 and get a 4급. If I’m gonna take it now, I don’t know if I’ll even pass the 3급.

I think I could join them in the review. And I could probably go with them to the exam venue. After finals I’m going to prepare for the 중급 with a goal of passing the 4급 on the next TOPIK!

So, to take TOPIK or not? Unless something strange or unexpected will happen later, I think I’d go for a NO.
