China stresses security, fairness ahead of college entrance exam

Updated 2017-06-03 10:56:00 Xinhua

The Chinese government has called for strict regulations to ensure the fairness of the national college entrance exams, known as Gaokao, due to take place early June.

The Ministry of Education Friday demanded tight security for the printing, transportation, storage, handing out and grading of exam papers to guard against leaks.

Detection and inspection methods should be adopted to prevent multiple forms of cheating, including the use of high-tech tools and substitute examinees.

In addition, the ministry has set up nationwide information lines for the public to report malpractice, vowing prompt handling of reports.

Gaokao is considered a relatively fair way to screen and select higher-education candidates, but the reputation of the test has taken a battering in recent years over allegations of cheating.
