November is one of the most important times of the year for high school students in Korea due to the "suneung," or College Scholastic Ability Test. The notoriously high-pressure exam is administered to high school students here every third Thursday in November.

This is the second college entrance exam that the country has held during the pandemic, which comes with an extra layer of stress and anxiety for test takers.
