Here is Miracle Mandarin Class, today we will talk about “Gaokao”. It means College entrance examination.
June 7 is a big day for people in China aiming to undertake higher education as the National College Entrance Exam, or “gaokao”, falls that day.
Each year, millions of Chinese sit the exam which is held normally on June 7-8.
It is taken by students in their final year of senior high school without age restriction. Last year 9.12 million students took the exam. Although university admission is rising, with more than 90 percent in some provinces, to enter a good university one still needs go through fierce competition.
In China that is five to six years of primary school, high school is subdivided into three years of lower secondary education and three years of upper secondary education. And gaokao is usually in June of the third year of higher secondary education (this is made only once each year).Once you missed the exam or you fail, you can test only the following year, in June, make. So call the students of higher secondary education “the black month June”.
In China, students don’t need a letter of recommendation, and any application. It just comes to a successful gaokao to explain.
Since the gaokao competition so intense, many students outside school diligently study, (still) after school tutoring.
In case there are some topics (which you’re strong), for example, arts, music, dance, musical instruments, physical education etc., you can relax. The university’s (then) what you points, less demanding.
The gaokao some unfair ways with some perspective. But in the view of many ordinary people, the gaokao already reasonable fair: it just comes to you gaokao very good to them. Unit what family they may come, everyone has the opportunity to a first grade college to study.
