The passing scores for the New format TOPIK (starting from 35th TOPIK) have been announced. In the old TOPIK structure, you needed to get a minimum score of 40 in all 4 sections to get levels 1, 3 or 5 and a minimum of 50 marks in all sections to get levels 2, 4 or 6. It meant if you got 70 percent marks overall but 39 in one section you failed. It’s really a good decision to remove this rule. Now they will just see your overall score and you get your level and pass/fail on the basis of total score. Low marks in one or more individual sections will not influence your overall result (pass/fail). Following are the levels and corresponding passing scores for the New TOPIK test.
