China's Ministry of Education has announced that a braille test paper will be made available for the College English Test, Level 4, which is an English test for college students.

The Ministry has made the announcement after a blind girl successfully sued the Education Ministry after initially being denied access to the CET-4.

The unnamed young woman is a senior student at Changchun University.

She requested the CET-4 in Braille, but was unable to take it, as it was unavailable at the time. After being told it was not going to be made available to help her apply for her master's degree for psychology, the girl decided to sue.

After winning her suit, the Ministry of Education has announced that CET-4 exams will be available for blind applicants as of next month.

Braille tests had already been available for many exams, including the national college entrance examination, the "gaokao."
