Over 5,000 pass Korean language test

Over 5,000 candidates who sat the Korean language test, with the aim of securing employment in Korea, have passed the examination, Director Kim Kyun Hyun said. He said that, of the 29,583 who had applied for the Korean language exam, only 24,276 sat the test, while only 5,332 passed. He said that 124 were found cheating and disqualified.

He said those who had passed the exam would have to undergo a medical test, and then would have to send in their applications to a Korean company. Mr. Kim further elaborated that the Foreign Employment Bureau of Sri Lanka would send in the applications to HRD Korea, where the applications would be assessed and then confirmed.

After the confirmation of the applications, names of the particular applicants would be registered under the roster of the Korean company.

Mr. Kim also stated that the 124 who had cheated at the exam did so according to his knowledge by the process called mobile cheating, whereby mobile phones were received over the wall of the test centre and used to retrieve answers.

Police who guarded the test centre had checked for mobile phones, but not detected them on some of the 124 candidates.
