    1. You have to go to kiiptest.org, but you need to go from the socinet website first so that it connects your login to the kiip test website.

  2. Do you have any information on when the registration day is for the next semester (starting May 19th?). I cannot find this info anywhere and socinet has not helped either.

    1. I don't need a level test, I've already completed through level 3 so I was wondering which day/how to register for the level 4 class. Last time I had a friend tell me when since I could find the info anywhere, but they aren't around anymore to help out.

    2. To apply for the next level class, you need to check the closest level test date. The upcoming one is in 27 April and result announcement date is 10 May. So, you can apply for the level 4 class at ~10 May. Make sure to check socinet website frequently at that time.
