How to Use Manuscript Paper

*This is an original translation of material published on the official TOPIK website in 2018.

1. Write one letter per square of manuscript paper.

2.When starting a sentence and changing paragraphs for the first time, leave the first square of the line empty and write from the second square.

3.Within the first paragraph, do not leave a square empty except at the beginning of a line. If there is no empty square at the end of a line, the first square of the next line is written without separating the lines. (It does not matter whether or not there is a “v” sign indicating separate writing.)

4.Write two Arabic numerals per square.

5.In principle, one symbol should be written in each square. However, dashes (ー) and abbreviations (……) should be written in two squares.

6. Question mark (?) and exclamation mark (!) are followed by an empty square. However, a space is not required after a closing mark (.), a comma (,), or a colon (:).

7. If a letter occupies the last square and there is no square for a symbol, the symbol is written with the letter in the last square.
