The Problem with the College Entrance Exam

In korea, students have to take a test to enter a university [College Entrance Exam]
There are two methods. One is Susi. The other is Jungsi. Jungsi have almost parts for this method
Korean student should be Sunung test for admission to Univ
Sunung test can take only once in a year.
if they do not attend the exam or don’t do well on exam, they’d have to wait another year.
this is a big problem.
So many students do not go to school, but rather study by themselves.
Many people want to change policy for the entrance to university.
Recently korea entrance examination system is very wasteful in sight of economy and time

Discussion Question:

1. The first time you took the College Entrance Exam, was your score good enough to get into the university that you wanted?
2. Did you consider taking the test again (to get a better score)?
3. Do you think the present test system is good? Why or why not?
4. How can we improve the system?
