A prayer for entrance success

, November 6, 2013

Mothers and grandmothers pray for their family members' success in the college entrance examinations at a Buddhist temple in Seoul on November 6. In South Korea, there is no higher achievement than to be accepted by a prestigious university. As a result, many students prepare for these entrance exams from an early age, often studying up to 16 hours a day for years to take this test. The government-sponsored scholastic aptitude test will be administered on November 7 this year, throughout the nation. Reuters/Kim Hong-Ji
