Korea University decided to repeal its plans to announce the “admission safety zone” scores of the past three years for the government-sponsored scholastic aptitude test for university admission by individual department.

Kim Sung-jin, an admissions expert advisor of Korea University, announced on March 16 that “According to the results of a meeting in the Admissions Office, we have decided to repeal our original plans to make public the safety zone scores and averages of the past three years, students admitted per individual high school, and the employment rates of graduates of individual departments. None of this information will be made available to the public.”

However, adviser Kim said, “In the admission presentations held in individual high schools, we will provide admission consultations along with information regarding the aptitude test scores of students from the high school in question who were admitted to Korea University.”

Earlier on March 16, the Korea University president of admissions Park Yoo-seong announced, “In order to help applicants to select universities, we are planning on announcing the “admission safety zone” score, the upper 75th percentile score among the students admitted, for each admission unit through our webpage later this month or in early April.”
