College Scholastic Ability Test

 On November 17, several unusual things were happening in South Korea – many parents were praying, some flights were rescheduled to reduce noise pollution, people went to work at different times to reduce traffic on the roads, and people didn’t honk their horns for some time. All of this was done so that about 600,000 high school senior students could get to their test centers and have a quiet atmosphere to take an eight-hour exam called the College Scholastic Ability Test (CSAT). For most kids, this test result will determine which university they get into.
