366 Chinese Universities Remove Master’s Entry Exams
Up until this year, the MoE has provided a total of 366 Chinese universities the right to recommend students to study at the Master’s level without taking any exams. Most students are required to sit the national “Gaokao” exam to enter post-graduate study. In theory, between 5% and 15% of undergraduates can receive this “free-exam” recommendation, but in reality, only some universities are required to follow this set percentage while others can remove the exam for 70% or even 100% of the graduates in certain disciplines. Overall, the post-graduates who do not need to sit the national exam have better academic results than the cohort who have to sit.
