B. Read the text and answer the questions!

In many countries, such as France, Greece, and Japan, it is often more difficult for the students to pass the college entrance exam than to do the course work when they are actually in college, and students who don’t have much money are at a disadvantage. Students prepare for these tests for years in advance. Often, students attend a private school at night (for instance, a juku in Japan or frontisiron in Greece) to get ready for them. These private schools are usually expensive. If their families don’t have much money, student can’t attend, and they might not pass the entrance exam without this extra preparation.

In contrast, students can easily get into an American or Canadian college-at least more easily than in other countries. American students take an entrance exam called the S.A.T (The Scholastic Aptitude Test). However, colleges do not consider only S.A.T scores. They also consider a student’s grades and activities throughout high school. A students who has done well in high school will probably get into college.
