In the second period of the 2021 College Scholastic Ability Test (CSAT), which took place on the 3rd, the math section that students in the humanities and social sciences usually take was similar to last year, and the family type that students in the science and natural sciences usually take was more difficult than last year.
In an online briefing held by the Korean Council for University Education Counseling and Counseling, Cho Man-ki, a teacher at Pangyo High School in Gyeonggi Province, said, “The level of difficulty must have been a little less burdensome for students as it was set at a level similar to last September’s mock test and last year’s CSAT.” “The blank reasoning or fractal questions that students felt the most pressure on the previous year’s CSAT were not presented this year.” In particular, he said, “Middle and lower-level students would feel difficult, but students in the upper-middle class would have felt flat compared to the September mock test or last year’s CSAT.” However, Type 20 questions, which can be solved only by knowing the relationship between differential and integral, and Type 30 questions, which have to be checked by dividing the absolute value, and the defined functions, and the differential and continuity, were selected as new types and high-level questions.
On the other hand, some experts said that the exam was more difficult than last year’s College Scholastic Ability Test and September’s mock test in September this year. Kim Jung-hwan, a teacher at Hyehwa Girls’ High School in Daegu, who is a member of the College Entrance Counseling Team, said, “As the process of solving questions for middle-level students has been somewhat prolonged, it may have been difficult for middle-level students to arrange time, and the geometric questions have been asked as calculus questions, so the top students must have felt somewhat difficult.” In particular, among the 20s, 21s, 29s and 30s, 토토사이트 which are so-called “killer questions,” which are presented to give discrimination against the top ranks, the calculation was complicated due to calculus-related problems, and the 28th question that needs to be applied was considered difficult. Teacher Kim said, “(A type of high-level questions) Not only did the number of high-level questions increase by one or two, but the solving process itself must have felt difficult because students spent more time than usual.”
Unlike in previous years, this year’s CSAT math section was the first test to be applied to the 2015 revised curriculum. As a result, geometry and vectors were excluded from the required range of questions, instead of math I, calculus probability, and statistics. In the case of Math Type B, the test was given in the probability and statistics of Mathematics I Mathematics II, and the aesthetic I, which was presented last year, was excluded. Oh Seok-seok, a teacher at Somyeong Girls’ High School in Gyeonggi Province, who was in charge of the general review of the CSAT’s math section for 2021, said, “The revised curriculum has reduced the contents by about 10 percent, but rather than making it easier, we can see that the questions that require in-depth thinking and application skills in the curriculum have been presented with discrimination due to their difficulty.” He also commented, “In both type A and type B, the ratio of EBS-linked questions is relatively low, so the difficulty of feeling can be formed high.”
Admission companies also analyzed that “Math A type has a high level of difficulty in feeling, and Type Na was easy compared to the mock test in June and September and last year’s CSAT.”
Lee Young-deok, head of the Daesung Institute for Education Development, said, “Mathematics Ga and B type were all similar to last year’s CSAT, and the overall level of difficulty felt is likely to have been similar to last year due to the increased difficulty of the remaining questions except killer questions.” Lim Sung-ho, CEO of Jongno Academy, said, “Mathematics A type has many difficult problems, so there will be a considerable difference in the level of difficulty between the upper and middle classes,” adding, “In Mathematics B type, the questions of the index and trigonometric functions newly added to the test range this year were also relatively plain.
