The application for the 253rd TOEIC Listening & Reading Test started from 12:00 p.m., on Wednesday, August 5. However, we have suspended the application due to the system malfunction caused by website traffic overload. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
The application was scheduled to be accepted in order they were received, and cease accepting once the limit was reached. However, in response to the recent situation where the customers could not apply for the tests, we have decided to change the application method. Test takers will be selected at random from all applicants.
Everyone will have the same chance of being selected, regardless of when they apply during the application period. In order to prevent website traffic overload, we would appreciate your understanding and cooperation to avoid applying for the test immediately after the start of application, and also immediately before the deadline, as much as possible.
The test takers for the 253rd TOEIC L&R Test will be selected at random from all applicants, who have completed the application and payment procedure during the following period. When you complete the application and payment procedure, "完了" (Completed) will be displayed on your application history, and the application confirmation email will be sent. However, this does not mean that you can take the 253rd TOEIC L&R Test. For those applicants who were not selected this time, we will refund the test fee. (If you applied for the test using the voucher, you can use the same voucher code.) The details will be notified via email. The refund will be made in early September.
*We understand that it is best to proceed to payment procedure after the selection process. However, we would like to reopen the application as early as possible, for those people affected by the suspension of the application and waiting to apply for the test. For these reasons, the payment is included as part of the application process.
In addition, please apply for the test one time only so that we can offer the opportunity to take the test to many applicants as possible. If the same person applied for the test more than once, we cannot offer the opportunity to others wishing to take the test. In order to prevent this situation, we ask you to finish payment, prior to the notification on the result of the selection.
We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.
*In response to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, we plan to continue the “Random Selection” process for the time being. For the latest information, however, please check our website.
