Nearly six months after a survey on university entrance exam reform, the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) yesterday received feedback from thousands of parents, educators, education specialists and students.
Students take part in a university entrance exam
As a result, university and college entrance exams will be abolished.
As to the results of the survey, MoET revealed forty-one percent of 20,000 questioned disagreed with the abolishment of the university/college exams, saying that students passing a high school exam may still not be qualified for studying in a university or college.
Forty percent of those surveyed agreed to the abolishment of entrance exams and ten percent said that in order to organize a 2/1 high school graduation exam that meets national standards, the MoET and schools will need a few more years for preparation.
Only nine percent said that it’s not necessary to make any change to university/college exams as they are good enough now.
