‘Sunueung’ is the word for the university entrance tests that Korean students must follow. Apparently the test is 8 hours long. This university entrance test is well known as being one of the most stressful experiences of a young Korean’s life. As the video below shows, great lengths are taken to make sure students study hard and the results of the test can have a significant impact on a student’s life.

This topic raises the question of how important tests are in measuring the value and capabilities of an individual. Some cultures, like that of Korea, place special emphasis on tests. If you do well, then there are many rewards. However, not doing well limits opportunities. In other cultures, there is an emphasis on the fact that every person has unique skills and abilities. Tests do not necessarily show these. Therefore we should look at other factors beyond the test performance of any individual.

What do you think? Should a person’s life be determined by how well they do on a test? Or should we reduce the reliance on tests? You can watch the video below. Please post below to give your comments on this topic.
