Entrance Exam

The entrance exam for getting admission in Foreign Languages is held in clusters, i.e., the entrance exam for BA Korean, Chinese and Japanese is held together. In other words, whether you’re opting for getting admission in Korean, Japanese or Chinese Department, only a single entrance exam will be held for them all. Here you have to write your preferences in the exam.

The same question paper will be provided to all the applicants, irrespective of the language they want to pursue( among Korean, Chinese and Japanese). After clearing this entrance test, students will get admissions based on their preferences they mentioned earlier.

The syllabus of this entrance exam is not very tough. The test contains questions from following topics;

  • Verbal Aptitude
  • General English Objective questions
  • Basic reasoning
  • G K (related to India)
  • Reading comprehension
  • G K ( related to Korea, China and Japan)
  • Subjective Questions (at the end)

One can easily prepare for the JNU BA Korea entrance exam. A few books are also available in the market for the same. But one can study without purchasing those books as well. Check out previous year question papers to get a clear idea about what kind of questions are asked in the test. Also, practice a lot so that you don’t get nervous at the time of your entrance exam.

After BA , you can also opt for higher courses in Korean Language from JNU. If you are a self-learner undergraduate and you want to switch to MA Korean studies, then you can apply for MA Korean entrance exam. As the syllabus for MA( in Korean) is pretty difficult, you must study really well to crack the entrance test.

Learning a foreign language can open a number of avenues for you in future. With the extension of trade between South Korea and India, learning Korean language can assure you a new career path.
