36,000 Nepali youths appear in TOPIK

36,181 aspirants appeared for the Test of Proficiency in Korean (TOPIK) exam held on August 28-29, 2010. South Korea has allocated a quota of 4000 out of the 22000 jobs to Nepalis under the Employment Permit System 2010. I wonder how these exams compare to the Entrance Exams to the medical and engineering degrees!

How does this compare to recruitment to the British Army? Well, last year, 28000 applicants participated in the recruitment process out of which only 230 soldiers were enlisted.
