Special EPS-TOPIK Announcements from POEA

 The POEA provides an update for those who registered for the special EPS-TOPIK (Employment Permit System-Test of Proficiency in Korean) last January 14 to 18.

According to the advisory posted in the POEA website, a huge number of voluntary returnees registered so it will take a long time to give the computer-based test (CBT). For this reason, the HRD-Korea and the POEA decided to conduct a one-time, special paper-based test instead on17 March 2013 at San Beda College in Mendiola, Manila.

The test will be given in two (2) batches: one in the morning and another in the afternoon. Those assigned in the morning (first session) cannot take the test in the afternoon (second session) and vice-versa.
