Passenger planes circled above Incheon International Airport in a holding pattern, Thursday, to avoid disturbing students on the ground taking a make-or-break college entrance exam.

A captured screen of the inbound flights coming towards Korea’s international airport has gone viral online, showing the planes flight paths as they circled the airport to bide their time.

High school seniors on Thursday took the College Scholastic Aptitude Test (CSAT). The planes were delayed around the time the English listening section of the exam was held.

Yoo Chang-sun of the Seoul Regional Aviation Administration Control Planning Department confirmed that the planes’ landings were delayed.

“The screen capture reflects what we did today,” Yoo told The Korea Times. “We put all of the landing airplanes on hold at a height that does not make problematic noises for test-takers from 1:05 p.m. to 1:40 p.m.”

It was confirmed by Incheon International Airport that air traffic controllers gave orders to fly three kilometers above ground.

    Why can’t they hold the test a few times a year and let them take the test in both juinior and senior year like the ACT and SAT? What if you get the flu that day? You have to spend an entire year after graduation from high school and keep studying for the test to take it the next November? It’s nice to see everyone cheer on and help the students.
