Foreign Correspondents Ep8
Korea's college entrance exam 'suneung'

On November 17, Korea's college entrance exam, also known as 'suneung', took place. This year, an estimated 600,000 students sat down for the test that will be one of the most important gateways to university. With such importance placed on the exam, each year, a number of measures are put into motion to ensure students can perform their best: subways and buses run more frequently, flights are grounded during listening tests, and parents pray throughout the day for the test takers. Such fervor has invited a great deal of foreign media attention over the years, as students across the country gear up for a battle in college admissions.

From China's 'gaokao' to France's 'baccalauréat'

With the belief that a good university will lead to success in life, Korean high school seniors suffer a great deal of stress caused by their college admission exam. Students from neighboring China also fiercely compete for university admission, which is fully dependent on their 'gaokao' test results. But unlike Korea's 'suneung' and China's 'gaokao,' which take place once a year, America's standardized tests, the SAT and ACT, are offered multiple times a year. Meanwhile, in France and Germany, test formats differ greatly, focusing on essay writing or oral exams. How do college admission procedures differ by country and cultural backgrounds, and what benefits do they offer?

We sit down to discuss these issues and more.
