TOPIK is conducted two times every year in New Zealand: The first test takes place in Auckland in April, and the second one in Christchurch in October. (The test can be cancelled in case of fewer than ten applicants apply).
TOPIK is divided into two levels, TOPIK Ⅰ is for applicants who need grades 1-2, and TOPIK Ⅱ is for those who need grades 3-6. The attained test score will determine the grade range. The valid period of the certification is two years since the test result was officially announced.
