Competitive education in South Korea

Going to a good university in Korea is conventionally believed to guarantee a high social standing. Therefore, Korean students start competing with other students to get a better grade at all the school subjects such as mathematics, English, music, and even sports. Especially from high school, they start preparing for the Korean SAT called Su-neung in Korean. High school students stay at school late for self-study time scheduled by the school and then go for additional private tutoring afterward.

Korea's compulsory education includes six years of primary education and three years of secondary education. The majority of citizens continue to study in secondary schools and pursue higher education degrees. The university enrollment rate is 70 percent, making it one of the highest among OECD countries.
