Now, UOS is considering whether to allow students to retake the course. There is a report by the Department of Student Affairs that the system of course retake may be revised in the near future. In the fall semester of 2014 only, UOS students had retaken 3300 courses out of 46802 subscribed courses.

At UOS, students are allowed to retake courses if they get a grade lower than B0. However, even those with B0 are reported to be retaking the course, which results in other problems, such as a difficulty in course registration. This phenomenon has led UOS to reconsider lowering the minimum grade for retaking. If this is put into action, from 2016, students with lower than C+ will be subject to course retake. In addition, students may be restricted from receiving A+, and the highest they can get may be A0.

Chung-Ang University, for instance, is applying a new regulation to students who are retaking the courses. From 2016, students will be banned from retaking at all unless they get F’s. Not only that, they will be allowed to retake only three classes in their entire campus life. If they retake the courses beyond these restrictions, their highest grade they can acquire will be B+. This new regulation of Chung-Ang University is applied because of complaints of companies. The inflation of grades in Korea is quite a serious problem. For example, among the graduates of Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, more than 70 percent of them graduate with A0. UOS is trying to reform the regulation of retaking the courses to ease the problem of grade inflation.

Regarding this suggestion, Kim Young-jae (Dept. of International Relations, ’14) mentioned that grade inflation of UOS is not as severe as that of other universities. He also added that restricting the course retake is too cruel for students who want to get better grades to get better jobs after graduation.
