The young man recently sat the gaokao, the grueling university entrance examination, and was quietly confident that he had performed well enough to be offered a place at one of the countrys most prestigious colleges.Related readings: Students flock to HK universities An education in the countrysideHowever, his exhilaration was short lived.The day before the results were set to be officially announced, local media descended on Lins school after a tip-off that the student was the provinces top scorer, or champion, in the test formally known as the National College Entrance Examination.Lin was overjoyed at the news, as were his parents and teachers. He happily posed for photographs, gave interviews and provided study tips. The school also provided firecrackers to set off when the official announcement was made.However, when the announcement came four hours later the smiles disappeared as quickly as they had arrived. The tip-off had been false and Lin wasnt the champion.The reporters disappeared to track down the real champion and the harassed school principal put the firecrackers back in their box and went home. Lin and his parents stayed on, at a loss to understand what had happened.”To many people, this sounds like a joke. Although its unclear whether the claims about the exam result were malicious in intent, the incident was deeply disturbing to the student and his family,” said Xiong Bingqi, deputy director of the 21st Century Education Research Institute in Beijing.”Luckily, Lin has a cheerful nature and his mother and father arent as obsessed about grades as some other parents, otherwise the consequences could have been too ghastly to contemplate,” he said.There was some consolation for Lin, too: Although, he didnt come out as top scorer, he performed well enough to ensure that top-class universities will be interested in him.1.

Photos Provided to China DailyA grueling testGaokao is hugely important for Chinese students. Conducted in early June, the test centers on three main subjects for all students (mathematics, Chinese and a foreign language) and a combined paper on politics, geography and history for arts specialists, or chemistry, physics and biology for those of a scientific bent. This year, more than 9 million students sat the exam, and for many its been the most important period of their lives so far.The Ministry of Education prohibited the release of information relating to gaokao champions as far back as 2004, but in the eight years since, enthusiasm hasnt faded, instead it has become increasingly intense. Every year the highest-scoring students, their families and schools are subject to huge public and media scrutiny.However, experts and academics have urged society to cool its worship of gaokao champions, believing that any possible benefits to the students and society are offset by the potential for harm because of the pressure exerted on the students.The practice of worshipping gaokao champions should have been eradicated a long time ago, according to Chu Zhaohui, a senior researcher at the National Institute of Education Sciences under the Ministry of Education. However, the reality is that many educational institutions still prioritize the best examinees and the media spares no effort to cover the top students.”I am sure that the majority of people are fully aware that these champions may simply be more attuned to exam-oriented education than other students. However, for middle schools and universities, producing or recruiting a gaokao champion means something else entirely,” said Chu. Producing a champion is the best free advert a school can get, and can directly affect its future recruitment, government funding and donations from the public, he said.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesGaokao tutorial business boomsThe gaokao equation: study, silence, successMake gaokao a fair exam for allGaokao still the door to the futurePhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsPremier praises innovatorsWide support seen for nationwide smoking banHow the smart age could revolutionize old agePark to be built on Tianjin blast siteAirports to help fuel traffic integrationExperts call for more private capitalPoliceman, journalist investigated for corruption in qigong master caseHugo Award winner Liu Cixin wins Chinese sci-fi awardChinas environment authorities to screen chemical hazardsChina blacklists 10 travel agenciesA man loves to devour up to 2.5 kg of red pepper daily, a scaled-down version of Venice is the basis of a completed real estate development in Northeast China, and vigorous exercise keeps a 93-year-old man healthy and fit.HighlightsNew rail network set to boost clusterCheating in civil servant exams means 7-year jailLove and loss in war and peaceTougher controls urged for e-cigarettesHot TopicsGround level Rule of law Panda China youths Anti-terror drive Family planning Smog Fox Hunt Beijing integrates with Tianjin, Hebei China cracks down on graftSpecialChina Legal Information Center60th anniversary of Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
