South Korea's College Scholastic Ability Test for the 2006 academic year will start simultaneously at 966 schools in 75 districts across the country at 8:40 a.m. on Wednesday.
A total of 593,806 people will take the test this year. Education authorities earlier said the level of difficulty would be the same as last year.
All CSAT takers have to report at designated schools by 8:10 a.m. and bring their admission tickets and IDs with them. They must leave their mobile phones at home because carrying them even by accident will be regarded as cheating.
All other electronic devices including digital cameras, MP3 players, electronic dictionaries, camera pens, calculators, radios and walkmen are also banned.
