Recently, more than half a million South Korean students in their final year of high school took the university entrance examination. Many people consider success on this test the first step toward a good life. But South Korean students say they feel stressed from the pressure. Seventeen-year-old student Lee Jee-woo is not ready yet to take the test. But he has a strong opinion about it. He says, “This test can determine the rest of your life.” South Korean high school students spend years studying for the university entrance examination. People say good scores guarantee entrance to a top university and possibly a high-paying job. Some say good test results even improve chances for a good marriage in the future. The test is multiple choice, meaning that the student may choose among several possible answers to each question. Some observers say this design does not help students learn to think for themselves. Jasper Kim is a professor at Seoul’s Ewha Women’s University. He says educators teach to the test because the results are so important for students. He also says learning by memorization produces a lot of stressed students. A recent government study found that South Koreans children are the least happy compared to children in 29 other developed countries. Many South Koreans blame educational pressure for this unhappiness. South Korean President Park Geun-hye has promised to reform her country’s educational system. She urges the educational system to increase creative thinking and reduce student tension.
