Some celebrities were given special admission, rendering the CSAT useless. The Korean education system gives students two options; special admission (similar to early acceptance) and general admission according to the CSAT results. Should one receive special admission, students have no need to take the CSAT.
Actor Kim So Hyun was accepted to the Hanyang University's College of Theatre and Film via special admission.
