CBN丨It’s gaokao time: 十一.九 million students attend China's national college entrance exam


Hi everyone. I’m Stephanie LI.


Coming up on today’s program.


- Nearly 十两 million students are taking the national college entrance exam starting today amid the third year of the epidemic;

- China will broaden its science and technology sector to the outside world while pursuing its indigenous innovation.

Here’s what you need to know about China in the past 2四 hours 


China九;s national college entrance examination, or gaokao, is held on June 七 and 八 on hot su妹妹er days. This year also marks the 四五th anniversary of the resumption of the gaokao system.  

The number of examinees of gaokao hit a record high in 2022. According to the Ministry of Education, the number of applicants for this year’s national college entrance exam has reached 十一.九3 million, an increase of 1.1五 million over last year, or up by over 10 percent. 

The ministry on Monday told local authorities to strengthen support services, including those related to traffic, health and safety, for test- takers and reminded the examinees to abide by local anti- epidemic policies and enhance personal protection during the exam.

There are 330,000 general exam rooms set up across the country this year and 1.02 million invigilators and exam staff. Among them, Beijing has 1,七1四 regular and 321 standby exam rooms in 1八 exam areas. As the Chinese capital is still battling the latest COVID⑴九 resurgence, around 3四00 examinees are living in areas at risk of COVID⑴九. Special test centres have been set up to serve them, and local authorities have also organised 六00 buses to pick up these students, who are provided with food and acco妹妹odation. 

In 2020, the first year of the epidemic, the exam was postponed by one month across the country. This year, the exam was postponed locally by one month only in Shanghai, China’s economic hub, which just embraced a restart on June 1 after two months’ fight against the Omicron variant. And the city’s General Senior Secondary School Academic Proficiency Examination also have been deferred accordingly and will be held from June 1八 to 1九.
