CHINA’S TOP UNIVERSITIES GROUP TOGETHER TO USE SAME ENTRANCE EXAM
Seven prestigious universities in China including Peking University, Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (Beihang), Beijing Normal University, Nankai University, Fudan University, Xiamen University and Hong Kong University announced that they would begin using the same independent exam – besides the national one – to test students hoping to gain entrance to them in 2011. Now nearly 80 universities across the country have the right to select talented students based on their own exams.
Nowadays more and more excellent high school students in China are inclined to choose overseas colleges and universities. “Chinese universities should not compete with each other but rather compete with foreign world-class universities in student enrollment,” said sources at the Peking University.
