No SUST student sits for NCEE

    南科大学生集体弃考

    Wang Yuanyuan

    None of the 45 students studying at South University of Science and Technology of China (SUST) in Shenzhen had sat for the National College Entrance Examinations (NCEE) last Tuesday despite a requirement by the Ministry of Education.

    The two examination rooms set up by the university were closed 15 minutes after the first examination was due to start because no one turned up, the university said.

    “We decided not to take the NCEE because we wanted to stick to our dreams. We chose the university for the reform, which meant we have already given up the traditional university route,” said Wu Jingfang, one of the students.

    Wu was supported by other students and their parents. One parent said on microblog at www.sina.com that they fully supported their children. “Taking the NCEE would have meant all we’ve done was meaningless. I am so proud of my son who has the courage to pursue his dream of reform,” he said.

    Several days before the NCEE, the students posted a notice on the Internet, saying they would refuse to sit for the NCEE because they were “determined to stick to their decision and have great expectations of the university.”

    “We decided to drop a State-approved diploma in the hope of learning real skills. This is the reason we chose SUST, for the education reform program,” the post said.

    SUST President Zhu Qingshi said the university respected their decision. “Whether to take the NCEE or not is their decision and the university will not interfere with them. We prepared two rooms in case any of the students changed their minds,” Zhu said.

    The courses and teaching methods had been recognized by parents and the university had made great progress.

    “There is no reason to stop a university from continuing to grow through reform. If it succeeds, it will be an example for other universities in China,” Zhu said.
