<Anchor> While the
number of new corona19 confirmed patients has maintained double digits for the second day, the government has come up with measures for college students 30 days before the SAT.
First, candidates infected with Corona 19 will be admitted to a hospital or life treatment center where they can take the test from the 12th, three weeks before the SAT, and test takers who are subject to self-isolation will take the test at a separate test center on the day of the SAT.
Reporter Ahn Sang-woo reported on what kind of feelings the test takers would like.
This is a high school in Seoul where high school 3 classrooms are gathered.
Including today (3 days), there are only 30 days left until the SAT.
However, the high school classroom is empty like this.
Because of the risk of infection, all seniors have switched to remote classes starting this week.
[Lee Seung-ho/High school 3rd class teacher: When students gathered at school, there is a risk of getting infected with Corona 19, so I switched to non-face-to-face classes before the SAT.] The
expansion of school was implemented on the 19th of last month due to the relief of social distancing Since then, the number of confirmed students has increased by more than 100 nationwide.
In particular, as the cases of infection in academies and schools continued, the concerns of test takers increased.
[Retaken: If people around me become infected, I will be quarantined, and if that happens, I don't think I'll be confident to spend another year if I can't see (SAT).]
Even high school students who are busy with final exam arrangements and counseling for entrance exams are in an atmosphere of being cautious by refraining from contact with people.
[High school 3rd student: Wear a mask, don't get together, and talk as little as possible.
'Let's block infections in this way.']
Starting on the 26th, a week before the SAT, all classes in high schools and some middle schools designated as test centers will be switched to remote locations.
