[Samgaksan High School 3rd grade: School teachers were also self-isolated. I have no mind. I only have two weeks of vacation, but because the test results come out today (I'm waiting.)] At a

college entrance examination academy in Seongbuk-gu near Sarangjeil Church, a bunch of 18 high school students were tested positive.

Among the confirmed cases, it is known that 17 high-school 3rd students who are preparing for the physical examination for physical education are included.

With the number of confirmed students and teachers approaching 100 in the last 8 days, mainly in the metropolitan area, the Ministry of Education put a brake on the non-metropolitan area, which was trying to increase the number of days to attend school.

[Yoo Eun-hye/Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education: Even outside the metropolitan area, I ask you to join us in reducing the school density to at least two-thirds.]

High school students preparing for the SAT and occasional examinations are only anxious.

Experts ordered a thorough preparation from the authorities, saying that a mock test for the assessor next month must be taken to reduce the uncertainty of the entrance exam.
