Last November, Seoul National University (SNU) announced that they would employ a system of reflecting applicants’ school grades when selecting students in its regular admissions as well as rolling admissions. This is a new and unprecedented situation. So far, in the regular admission category, in which students are selected by the CSAT scores, applicants’ school grades have not been reflected. 


This change was actually made in 2019, as one of the ways to strengthen fairness in the college admission system. It included many ways to raise the ratio of the CSAT scores in selecting new students, since many people questioned fairness of the rolling admission system. 


According to the new system of  Seoul National University,  twice the number of regular enrollments will be selected by the applicants’ CSAT scores during the first phase. Then, the entrants will finally be selected by their CSAT scores (80%) and school grades (20%) during the second or final phase.
Here, their “school grades” will be classified into 5 ratings. Their grades will be evaluated by the absolute evaluation criteria.


However, recently on the Chongwadae National Petition Bulletin Board, a petition was reportedly posted on the “requiring the withdrawal of the SNU’s expedient policy to increase rolling admissions.” 
They argue that this violates the guideline of strengthening fairness. However, the Ministry of Education replied that it doesn’t matter only if the reflection ratio of the CSAT scores is over 51%. The Ministry also added that the new policy of raising the reflection ratio of the applicants’ school grades would alleviate the trend of the regional disproportion.
