The Biggest Test

Tomorrow, November 7th, is the Suneung, or College Scholastic Aptitude Test (CSAT), South Korea’s annual college entrance exam.

Although I’m a teacher at a Korean middle school, the test reverberates across the entire society. For me, that has meant odd start times and random schedule changes as many of the younger teachers at my school prepare to proctor the test tomorrow. Without going into detail, this is the most important test that many of these kids will ever take–it can literally change your life forever.

To give people a better sense of what the Suneung is all about, I’ve made a Storify combining various social media and web posts to help explain. The storify won’t embed on the blog, so you can check it out here:
