Today is the orientation day for the nationwide College Scholastic Ability Test or Suneung that's set for Thursday.
Test-takers, some 593-thousand of them, are taking a break from their last-minute cramming by visiting their test-sites and learning the strict rules that are in place during the test.
And as the students get the last minute details sorted out, the entire nation is also doing its share of the job,
On the actual test-day, around 15-thousand police officers will be dispatched to assist students on their way to their test-sites.
Traffic restrictions will be in place around test centers, and flights will also be controlled during the English-language listening section of the test.
Stock markets and some businesses say they will start their work day an hour late to help keep traffic to a minimum to ensure no students run late.
