The annual College Scholastic Ability Test(CSAT) is under way at some 13-hundred test sites across the nation on Thursday, amid a surge in COVID-19 infections.
 
The state-administered college entrance exam began with a Korean language test at 8:40 a.m. It will be followed by sessions on maths, English, Korean history and science. The fifth and final foreign language exam will end at 5:45 p.m.

More than 509-thousand-800 people applied for the test this year, a slight increase from last year when the figure posted the lowest since the CSAT was introduced in 1994.

Applicants infected with the virus are taking the test at COVID-19 treatment centers and hospitals across the nation and those in self-quarantine at 112 separate venues. 

As of 12 a.m. Tuesday, the number of test-takers infected with the virus stood at 68, while the figure for those in self-quarantine marked 105.

Everyone taking the test are required to wear face masks. They will be notified of their results on December 10.
