The City of Busan is making every effort to support the 30,901 students who will be taking the College Scholastic Ability Test (CSAT) on November 14.
Students are scheduled to take the exam from 8:40 a.m. to 5:40 p.m. across Busan. All those taking the test must enter their appointed classrooms by 8:10 a.m. on the day of the exam.
On the day of the exam, the city will operate buses and village/neighborhood buses more often between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m., especially for the bus routes on the test sites.
The bus-only lane system will be suspended from 7 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and the self car-free day program will be temporarily stopped on the day of the test. The Busan Metropolitan Fire & Safety Headquarters will offer rides to handicapped students requiring assistance getting to their test locations.
Workers at government offices, public agencies, financial firms, schools and companies with more than 50 employees will be allowed to arrive at work by 10 a.m., an hour later than usual. The city hopes to curb early morning traffic congestion to allow students to get to their exams on time.
Construction work near test sites will also be restricted to reduce noise and interference for students taking their foreign language listening and speaking tests.
