PKU recommendation system

2010-03-08 21:10 BJT


It's the first time in China: High school principals with the ability to recommend students for the university's own enrollment exam.

"We want to select students with specialized talent, or those with well-developed all-round abilities."

Peking University asked principals from 39 high schools around the country to recommend students according to their own standards. The Principals are all taking it very seriously.

"Principals are, on behalf of their schools, but not on behalf of themselves. It's not a privilege for principals. We should not trade off with it."

Most of the 90 recommended students have special talents: 14-year-old Hong Xinge from Wuxi Tianyi High School, is good at writing. Kuang Chao from Nanjing Normal University Affiliated High School, has won several prizes in English, physics, and maths. Liang Hao of South China Normal University Affliated High School is good at economics.

All the 90 passed face to face interviews with Peking University in February. That means at least 20 extra points on June's national college entrance exam.
