The 2028 College Scholastic Ability Test, which will be taken by current middle school second-year students, will return to the common subject system six years after the Korean language and mathematics sections were changed to the ‘common + elective’ system in the 2022 CSAT. I have to go. The field of inquiry, which has always been an elective subject, also returns to the common subject system for the first time in almost 30 years since the 1999 school year, with all students taking the Integrated Social Studies and Integrated Science together.
However, in the case of mathematics, attention is focused on the conclusion as the National Education Committee is scheduled to discuss a proposal to place ‘Advanced Mathematics’, which includes Calculus II and Geometry, as an elective subject using an absolute evaluation method. According to the ‘2028
college entrance system reform plan’ released on the 10th, the Ministry of Education decided to abolish elective subjects and introduce an integrated subject system in order to resolve the advantage and disadvantage phenomenon of subject selection in the CSAT and ensure fairness. Accordingly, the ‘common + elective’ system for Korean and mathematics, which was introduced along with the implementation of the integrated CSAT for liberal arts and science in the 2022 school year, will return to the common subject system after 6 years. Currently, in the case of Korean language, 75% of the questions are from reading and literature, which are common subjects, and 25% are from elective subjects. As for the elective subjects, test takers choose one of ‘Speech and Writing’ or ‘Language and Media’.
Starting from the 2028 school year, all students will solve common questions covering △speech and language, △reading and writing, and △literature. These three subjects are subjects that test takers mainly learn in their second and third years after first learning Common Korean Language 1 and 2 in high school.
As for mathematics, currently, 75% of the questions are from the common subjects Mathematics I and Mathematics II, and 25% of the questions are from the elective subjects.
The elective subjects are three subjects: ‘Probability and Statistics’, which is mainly taken by students who want to enter the fields of humanities and social sciences, and ‘Calculus’ and ‘Geometry’, which are mainly taken by students who want to go into the fields of natural sciences, engineering, and medicine.
Starting from the 2028 school year, questions in the mathematics area will be common in △Algebra △Calculus I △Probability and Statistics.
Kim Han-seung, head of the curriculum support team at the Ministry of Education, said, “Calculus, an elective subject for the current CSAT, is classified as ‘Calculus II’ in the new curriculum and is excluded from the scope of common questions.” He then explained, “‘Calculus I’, which is included in the 2028 College Scholastic Ability Test (CSAT) math questions, is included in ‘Mathematics II’, a common subject in the current CSAT, so the amount of learning for students does not change.”
However, the Ministry of Education decided to request the National Education Committee to consider including ‘Calculus II + Geometry’ as an optional ‘Advanced Mathematics’ subject. This is due to the academic community’s demand that in order to cultivate talent in high-tech fields, it is necessary to study calculus and geometry at the high school level and evaluate their mathematical abilities.
However, if advanced mathematics is left as an optional subject, it may be pointed out that the true integration of liberal arts and science is not achieved.
Jeong Seong-hoon, head of the Ministry of Education’s talent selection system department, said, “The National Education Commission will review various opinions and propose a final plan to the Ministry of Education. Even if advanced mathematics is included in the CSAT, the questions will be presented at a level that encourages learning of various concepts to prevent excessive private education, and there will be no absolute “We will evaluate it using an evaluation method,” he emphasized.
Another major change in the 2028 CSAT is that the research area will also be changed to a common subject system, and all students will take ‘Social Studies and Science’ together.
Previously, a maximum of 2 subjects were taken from 17 subjects, including 9 social studies and 8 science subjects, but from now on, integrated social studies and integrated science will be taken commonly.
The scope of the questions is ‘Integrated Social Studies 1·2’ and ‘Integrated Science 1·2’, which are mainly taught in the first year of high school, and are the 4 subjects standard for high school classes.
Jeong Seong-hoon, head of the talent selection system department, said, “We plan to encourage convergent learning by having all applicants for social studies and science studies take the same social studies and science subjects, which cover overall content, without elective subjects. However, we plan to encourage convergent learning so that universities can evaluate each level.” “The test times and scores for science and science will be managed separately,” he said.
In the case of inquiry subjects, the system returns to the common subject system 29 years after the introduction of a system that allowed students to choose one elective subject from the Mathematical Inquiry II section (4 social studies + 4 science subjects) of the 1999 CSAT.
It is also the first time in 23 years since the 2005 CSAT that all students were required to take the social studies and science tests together.
In the current CSAT, students who want to advance to the humanities and social sciences majors mainly take 2 social studies subjects,
Career exploration is also a common question in the ‘Successful Professional Life’ curriculum.
In addition, in the case of Korean history and second foreign language/Chinese characters, only the exam subjects먹튀검증 are adjusted according to changes in the curriculum.
The evaluation method and grade provision method for each area are the same as the current CSAT.
The English section, Korean history section, and second foreign language/Chinese characters are assessed through absolute evaluation, and for the rest, standard scores and relative evaluation levels of 9 are provided.
EBS linkage will maintain the 50% indirect linkage method as it is currently, but as already announced by the Ministry of Education, the sense of linkage will be strengthened by increasing the similarity of diagrams, prints, and photos used in EBS lectures and textbooks for CSAT questions.
