Change in Policy Sees Fewer Candidates Sitting Graduate Entry Exam

According to the MOE, the number of candidates that participated in the 2014 national graduate school entry exam fell by 40,000 to 1.72 million. This was this first annual decline in five years, largely reflecting a change in policy. For the first time, students under 40 will be required to pay their own postgraduate tuition if accepted into a graduate course without a university scholarship. In addition, scholarships are now open to candidates of all ages; previously, applicants were required to be below 40 years of age to qualify for a postgraduate tuition waiver (although the age restriction was waived for those willing to pay their own tuition).
