You have to fill-out and submit a registration form and pay a registration fee. You can get the forms from the Jung-In Office (I can’t find a downloadable application from online). Don’t forget to bring ID pictures when you go to Jung-In office, you need to attach 2 ID photos on the forms. As for the size, it looks like the passport size one, however they are not strict with it anyway. I submitted 2×2 ID photos before and last time I submitted 1x1s. 🙂
I’m not taking the exam this April because 1.) I have to take summer classes and 2.) I don’t think I’ll be ready for the intermediate by then (knowing that I have tons of schoolwork to finish by the end of March). Good luck to those who are planning to take the exam this summer. 🙂
By the way, I heard the registration fee is 300 pesos and I also heard the registration is only until February 9th. I’m not 100% sure about these info, so don’t quote me. Please call Jung-In for verification.
Get off LRT 1 – Gil Puyat Station. Walk along Taft Ave (towards Vito Cruz station). The name of the building and the street sign is barely noticeable, so just look for a light pink building with a big sign written in white hangeul against a dark blue background that reads 마닐라 구세군 교회 (The Salvation Army Manila Korean Church).
