China Daily, October 15, 2013 Adjust font size:

Plans to reform the gaokao, China's College Entrance Examination, will be released soon, according to a specialist, Yangcheng Evening News, a Guangzhou-based newspaper, reported on Monday.

"Instead of promoting a uniform reform plan across the country, the Ministry of Education will grant provinces the ability to reform the examination in accordance with their own actual situations," Wu Yingmin, vice-president of the Chinese Society of Education was quoted as saying.

Examination subjects, scoring systems and admission should be decided by provinces themselves, Wu, who was attending an education forum on Friday in Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, told the newspaper.

He also suggested that colleges should have a bigger say in admitting students according to their own requirements. Different requirements and standards will make the training more diversified, Wu was quoted as saying in the report.
