China started college enrollment and the formation of the joint independent "two camps", has aroused widespread concern. "Exam" is to give the candidates more choice of candidates or increase the extra burden? "Exam" is a positive interaction between the sharing of resources or competition for students of the cut-throat competition? "Entrance exam" can become another Independent Enrollment of University "ice-breaking" point, push forward the reform in depth?
In late November of this year, Beijing University, Fudan University, University of Hong Kong, Great Northern, Beijing Normal University, Nankai, and Xiamen University also announced the seven universities, will hold a joint self-selection test. Reporter from the Beijing University Admissions Office was informed by head of the seven universities are basically known for Biomedical Engineering, Arts and comprehensive university in the history of the traditional, spiritual culture, especially the concept of personnel training and training objectives are similar, seven schools Enrollment of joint work of independent, candidates to participate in an examination, many universities can obtain an application interview, not only increasing the choice of candidates, but also reduces the cost of examination candidates, largely reduce the pain of candidates to run around.
Choose whether to reduce the increasing burden?
Beijing University Admissions Office official said, "Exam" the primary consideration is to reduce the burden on the candidates, candidates back and forth to avoid, reduce test costs.
"For example, Fudan University, Arts and comprehensive very stressed, would require candidates who apply for Fudan University to provide results of seven subjects, while other universities may not have such a requirement. Some universities even single subject results based on the selection of candidates, is conducive to diverse talent to the fore. in the examination content, by the participating universities according to the common school personnel training needs of positioning, joint proposition, focusing on quality and ability of candidates to examination. "Dingguang Hong said.
For the "entrance exam" this forms, candidates from different perspectives. Fudan University 2009 freshman undergraduate Chen I attended Tsinghua University organized the "five school entrance exam", also took part in the selection of Fudan University's own admission. She said in an interview: "Universities 'entrance exams' form can provide a lot of convenience to students, making entrance into the elite schools to lower the threshold of a lot. But I personally do not adapt to this approach. Because each school character, and to participate in 'exam', they need to do a few schools out of the theme of a unified comprehensive volume, we need to do a volume selected characteristics of colleges and universities.
Shanghai Jiaotong University affiliated high school (9) classes Wangwen Chen on the "exam" policy introduced quite concerned. I always hope that through self-selection and recruitment of university admitted favorite, but do not know which schools apply for good. Today I heard how the Joint University Entrance Examination, may I have more options. Such as the former wanted to test 13 schools, then we should test 13 times, now only need to test one or two is enough, do not leave, carrying bags full of an exam. "
"Self-recruitment 'exam' is to selection of supermen? Students baffled why it must?" Said Qi Xiong C, "'exam' basic functions, the selection is not a college entrance exam, but the assessment of student ability test, since So, how to better evaluate the actual ability of students, should be the topic and the basic principles.
Qi Xiong C, said, "exam" questions slightly more difficult than the college entrance examination can be understood - a place for all of the college entrance examination candidates, and the "entrance exam" for promising candidates into an institution - but if the "exam" questions are became a race issue, not only is not conducive to evaluating candidates for the true capacity of basic education will also have adverse misleading.
"I want this reform to go further, be recognized and unearthed a new way to own admission, 'exam' is necessary for school test problems, the form and content of the examination for further improvement."
In this regard, Fudan University, dean of admissions Dingguang Hong said that in 2011 the "seven school entrance exam," though still in one day, but the papers will not be difficult to reach competition level. "If five years ago, is the Independent Enrollment ice-breaking trip, then we hope to further the ultimate goal of reform is to achieve the quality of secondary education requires comprehensive development, students have sufficient choice, there is sufficient choice college, students do not pay weight.
