제3회 KLPT도전

Two days after coming back from Korea, I applied for KLPT and today is the test.

The test started at 10am but we were 'confined' inside the exam room from 9am onwards. This may be my third time but I was anything but calm. Instead of saying I was nervous, I should say I was excited. Excited to be back in NEX, excited to meet some familiar faces and last but not least, I believe I have a good chance of getting grade 4 or better.

The test started with listening. The first word read out was "뜨거워요", followed by "오늘은 12월31일입니다 and so on and so forth. There came a time when it became so difficult that I had to pick my answer blindly. As you can see, I still have some more distance to go; i am still not there yet.

40 minutes of listening and 70 minutes of reading but not even half a minute to catch a breath. I kept telling myself "Forget it if I don't know, go to the next question. There is not enough time for me to ponder." When I just completed shading the last circle on my answer sheet, the test ended. It was that close.

Compared to previous tests, there was less guessing work this time. I should have no problem surpassing my previous score of 305 marks. How well I will do is anyone guess. Test results are expected to be out 2 weeks later. Until then, below is how I would grade myself:

Grade 1 - No chance
Grade 2 - Slim chance
Grade 3 - Good chance
Grade 4 - High chance
Grade 5 - Some chance
Grade 6 - Undeserving even if there is chance
