Can you pass the 2018 CSAT English test?



The English test of Korea's College Scholastic Aptitude Test (CSAT) is notoriously difficult ― so much so that many native English speakers (well-educated adults) have called it a "CRAZY" test after looking through some of the texts and questions put on test takers' desks.

This year's test, conducted on Thursday, is said to be "tougher to answer" compared with previous years.

Here are sample texts and questions from the 2018 CSAT English test.

Check your English ability with them ― and imagine how hard it is to live in Korea as high school students studying for the CSAT.


PS: Test takers were given 45 questions that needed to be answered in 70 minutes.
