there's a difference between being challenging, but helpful to the overall development of the mind, and just being contrived for contrivance's sake.

These questions were not hard at all, it's only a simple matter of text reading and comprehension. You do not need to understand the whole text since the answers can be eliminated through simple logic. Despite this, i believe that the math questions would be a tougher challenge.

in korean high school, people discourage you not to have questions , not to act distictively in the class. we just take the class and have to study till 10 p.m...  (no exception, except to students who are permitted to the private academy instead of studying in the school). I opposed this "mandatory night study" . i was almost casted out. treated like student with special needs. it's like locking up. i hated it. and told my parents. my parents asked me you just don't wanna study..  that's all .. well it was a hell of a time, i couldn't bear it so i went to the mental clinic when i was close to taking an exam. so i failed at the test, went to one of the shittest college. thought the  life was over there. but after living, life is not all about college and exams..thank god

Oh this is beyond risible, "malapropism" its called. The usage of words here indicate solecism and infelicity, much like theological studies where everything is scarcely based on fallacy of equivocation, scarcely any sense.

If you have the time to think about the question it is okay but korean exams are actually timed. I'm pretty sure a korean student would have to answer that question at least twice as fast as they did. The level required is extremely high for high school level.

Meh, it's two different trains of thought. But I will say, a lot of my fob friends got accepted in to major universities in Korea, and came to the states afterwards to breeze through our graduate programs. I saw a few comments about teaching to tests and crap, but if you ever get a chance to go to a university in Korea, China, or Japan, you won't need a translator. I found semi-fluent to fluent literally everywhere I went. Jesus, especially in China. Different jobs in China require you to have a certain rank in multi lingual fluency. Particularly English, Korean, and Japanese. If you take a flight in China, and speak multiple languages, through out all of them. They'll absolutely love you for the practice.

Seemed fairly easy to me. The annoying part is they probably time you, and if you rush through it of course you are going to get it wrong. If you have a moment to read through and think about it however, it isn't that difficult.

As a Korean, I want to tell you that there is a kind of distortion in the video. Those passages are the most ambiguous? and difficult questions of the test. This video shows just a little about Korean SAT English section test.

you are never ever ever EVER going to use these kinds of English nor you'll actually be able to converse with people from English culture even if you pass these fcked up test. They spend 20+/- years in English yet they barely be able to speak English at all.

these are not questions about knowledge or whatever. you just need a lot of concentration

Автор Rusty Shacklford ( назад)
Is it weird that I didn't find these questions that hard? I mean all you had to do was find the main idea of the passage and find the answer synonymous with that. The complex paragraph and understanding the meaning behind it was irrelevant, the test was about analyzing the text and stating that analysis in different terms, not philosophy. Though the passages themselves were confusing if you know what the question is and focus on answering it rather than understanding the passage as a whole, the problem is simple.

Honestly with questions these hard, you're better off studying the patterns in which the correct answers appear, and choosing them based on what you've learned

Автор Rachel Rogers ( назад)
I honestly would argue that this kind of testing would be beneficial. They aren't suicidal because the tests are too hard they're suicidal because they feel inadequate. That is a problem that we need to deal with separately, because after all this is the exact same reason why suicide is so prevalent amongst doctors, but no one is suggesting stop treating people because it's too hard.

Just gonna comment before the vid that they won't pass considering how some Koreans take grades seriously to the point of suicide. This is supposedly the hardest test as well.
*edit* They did pass and they actually brought up the topic suicide😮

Let's be honest. even if you lived for eternally those kind of BS questions will never come to you until the Earth explodes in the next few hundred billion years so why put them in the test. why even learn those kinds of things?

When you are a "developing", satellite state; you do encounter such problems. It's the same with Turkey: People think of education as memorizing outdated; overly complicated concepts that would never be used in real life, yet when they look at the country's progress in any of the subjects, they realize they're far behind their goals. As humans, we learn what we need and what we'd use; not abstract concepts that have no connection to present.
