Kathmandu, June 29
The results of Korean Language Test of Nepali candidates under the Employment Permit System of Seoul government for the year 2019 has been published on Friday.
The EPS Korea Section under the Department of Foreign Employment (DoFE) had taken the examination on June 9 and 10. The Department says the results were published early this year thanks to the optical character recognition (OCR) technique used in the test.
A total of 7,996 students passed the test and it is more than the required quota, informed Shobhakar Bhandari, spokesperson of the Section. The Korean government has already informed that it would recruit 7,100 Nepali workers this year.
Therefore, of the passed ones, only 7,100 will be able to fly to Korea for jobs next year. The passed ones will be listed in a roster and sent for labour contract.
As many as 74,866 students had attended the KLT exam that the individuals require to obtain a work permit in South Korea.
