CSAT date is pushed back by summit

Korea has pushed back this year’s state-administered college entrance exam by one week because the original schedule overlapped with the summit of the Group of 20 major economies, the Education Ministry said yesterday.

The decision was made over concerns that road blockages and massive police deployments, expected in Seoul for security of the foreign heads of state attending the Nov. 11-12 summit, could make it difficult for test-takers to get to exam centers on time, the ministry said. The College Scholastic Aptitude Test, originally set for Nov. 11, has been rescheduled for Nov. 18. Test results will be announced on Dec. 11, three days later than initially planned, the ministry said.

The exam is considered to be a crucial factor in determining a student’s future career opportunities. On test day, regulations are put in place to quiet traffic and military noise that may affect students taking the test.
