SNU Regular Admissions Procedure to Be Simplified with CSAT Scores as the Sole Criterion

For incoming students of the year 2015, their Korean College Scholastic Aptitude Test (CSAT) scores will be the sole criterion upon which admission through SNU’s regular admissions program will be based. SNU President Yeon-Cheon OH announced that essay writing tests and interviews will no longer be required for students applying for regular admissions. SNU stated that they could not find any significant difference between the academic achievements of students chosen based solely on CSAT scores and students chosen based on scores, essay writing and oral interviews combined. As many students and parents have complained about the increasingly complicated college admissions procedures, even resorting to overpriced private counseling and tutoring, SNU is abolishing unnecessary stages to alleviate the burden on prospective students.
