The placement test in Korean typically consists of the following parts:

  • Section I: Vocabulary
  • Section II: Grammar
  • Section III: Reading Comprehension
  • Section IV: Writing
  • + Modified OPI (Oral Proficiency Interview)


The test will be remote and is in two parts.  First is an online test (and for some people, that will be sufficient to determine they need to start in the 101 class; everyone else will continue to the second part).  Second is a zoom meeting in which you’ll do a written test (by hand, not typing) and an oral interview.
