The college entrance examination is an event of great concern to the whole society. At this year’s National Two Sessions, the suggestions made by Wu Renbiao, a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and Vice President of Civil Aviation University of China, are related to the date of the college entrance examination.
At present, the college entrance examination time is fixed on the 7th and 8th of June each year. These numbers are linked together and are jokingly called “admission”. However, Wu Renbiao has a new experience like other parents who have experienced their children’s college entrance examination. He said that if June 7th and 8th are not weekends, many parents of candidates will take time off to accompany their children to take the college entrance examination. In addition, if the test site is far away from the test taker’s home, parents will generally stay in a hotel near the test site because of concerns about traffic jams and delays. It will undoubtedly increase the financial burden of candidates’ families.
At the same time, in order to ensure that the majority of candidates can take the test on time, the city generally adopts traffic control measures, which will cause difficulties for other citizens to travel. In addition, other lower-grade students in the school where the test center is located will have holidays for the college entrance examination these days, but in fact the semester is not over, which will affect the study of other students.
Therefore, Wu Renbiao suggested that people-oriented, fine-tune the college entrance examination time to the first weekend of June, instead of the fixed 7th and 8th, the above problems can be solved. Moreover, because the time adjustment range is small and the adjusted time is fully known in advance, it will not bring too many changes to the examination and subsequent admissions work.
Wu Renbiao said that this suggestion is also suitable for the fine-tuning of the examination time for junior high school and middle school, that is, the examination time should be arranged on the weekend closest to the current fixed examination time. He said that there are already many places in the country where the senior high school entrance examination and the junior high school entrance examination are conducted on a fixed weekend of a certain month, so the above suggestions are not only necessary, but also feasible.
