It was analyzed that the number of ‘killer questions’, which is one of the reasons for the increase in private education expenses of examinees in college scholastic ability tests and mock exams, has increased rapidly in the past two years.According to the Ministry of Education on the 26th, it was revealed that 7 ‘killer questions’ were presented identically in the mock evaluation in June and the college scholastic ability test held in November last year. In the previous year’s CSAT, 7 killer questions came out. However, two years ago, only one killer question was presented in mathematics. It was analyzed that the results of the investigation on the ‘quasi-killer’ question, which is a difficult question equivalent to the killer question, was omitted from this presentation, and it would not be possible to present an accurate private education countermeasure.Lee Joo-ho, Deputy Prime Minister for Social Affairs and Minister of Education, unveiled the ‘Measures for Reducing Private Education’ at the Seoul Government Complex on the same day, and the case of killer questions that were recently presented in the CSAT and mock evaluation.Recently, as President Seok-Yeol Yoon ordered the ‘creation of the CSAT in the public education curriculum’, the Ministry of Education started working to remove the killer question. On this day, the Ministry of Education announced a plan to operate a ‘fair scholastic ability evaluation advisory committee’ to exclude killer questions and maintain the ability to discriminate the scholastic ability test. In addition, the ‘Fair Examination Examination Committee’ was newly established to check questions from the initial exam preparation stage.However, top-ranked prestigious universities have complained that if the CSAT is too easy, it is difficult to select new students due to similar grades. For this reason, there is an argument that an appropriate high-difficulty killer question has a good positive function in distinguishing students from the top ranks who aim for prestigious medical schools. However, preventative measures should be put in the killer questions so that middle and low-level students do not waste their time. In the CSAT, killer questions with particularly long fingerprints can be marked with a separate asterisk (★), or the order of killer questions can be placed at the end of the test paper스포츠토토. This is because there is no need for students in the middle and lower grades to cling to the esoteric killer questions that are difficult even for university professors to solve.There are also concerns that if the killer question completely disappears, prestigious universities that have lost their ability to discriminate in student selection may make essay tests difficult or even extreme demands for a revival of the main test.■Math has the most killer questions, sothe Ministry of Education formed a killer question inspection team with external members, and looked at 480 questions in Korean, mathematics, and English for the mock evaluation from 2021 to 2023 and the June 2024 CSAT. As a result, it was judged that a total of 22 killer questions were presented, 7 in Korean, 9 in mathematics, and 6 in English.In particular, in the mock evaluation in June, questions 14 and 33 of the common subject in the Korean language area were selected as killer questions. The Ministry of Education explained that the Korean language killer question was “a question that students with background knowledge can solve relatively easily and quickly,” saying, “We used fingerprints and jargon that are difficult to understand at the high school level.”In the mathematics area of ​​the mock evaluation in June, questions 21 and 22 of the common subject and number 30 of the calculus subject were judged to be killer questions. In the math area, it is said that there were killer questions, such as combining several mathematical concepts, requiring excessively complex thinking or high-level solutions. In the English area of ​​the same evaluation , questions33 

and 34 were pointed out as killer questions. These questions explain that the contents of the writing are somewhat abstract and that the sentences are composed more difficult than the general level covered in public education. The Ministry of Education analyzed that a total of seven killer questions were presented in last year’s CSAT, including two in Korean, three in mathematics, and two in English.■Unclear criteria for killer questions ‘question mark’Despite the release of the killer questions by the Ministry of Education on this day, the point that the criteria for judgment is unclear is still pointed out. Rather than judging the killer question based on numerical values ​​such as the percentage of incorrect answers, the Ministry of Education uses ‘whether it can be dealt with in the public education process or not’ as the criterion for judgment. Because of this, the criteria for judging the killer question may vary from expert to expert.Also, if the standard for the killer question is shaken, the confusion of the students who have to take the CSAT this year will inevitably increase. It is not possible to determine what problems to prepare for, and there is a good chance that the result of having to resort to private education again to solve them is not small. The question of whether it is possible to exclude killer questions and maintain discrimination is also unresolved.An official from the admissions industry said, “As the uncertainty in the SAT increases, test takers fall into confusion and the number of people seeking private education increases.” It would be great,” he said.Minister Lee said, “In order to solve the complex and difficult private education problem, students and parents, education offices, related ministries, and even local governments and the private sector must all put their heads together and join forces.” I ask for something,” he said.
