Anti-cheat­ing mea­sures set for

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

The Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion has signed con­tracts with higher ed­u­ca­tion ad­mis­sion com­mis­sions of all prov­inces, re­gions and mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties to en­sure a fair, trans­par­ent na­tional col­lege en­trance ex­am­i­na­tion, or gaokao, across the coun­try.

The exam will take place on June 7 and 8. About 9.12 mil­lion people took the exam in 2013.

Anti- cheat­ing mea­sures in­clude mon­i­tor­ing cam­eras at ev­ery test­ing venue and mo­bile sig­nal shield­ing.

Lo­cal ed­u­ca­tion de­part­ments are re­quir­ing all can­di­dates and their par­ents to sign a let­ter in which they prom­ise they won’t cheat on the exam.

Zhong Shijun, from the ed­u­ca­tion depart­ment of Changchun, said that the city has spent 20 mil­lion yuan ($3.2 mil­lion) in­stalling a sys­tem to pre­vent cheat­ing in ex­ams such as by pre­vent­ing any words or num­bers from ap­pear­ing on elec­tronic de­vices and by dis­turb­ing trans­mis­sions to any ear­phones.

In Changchun, cap­i­tal of Jilin prov­ince, a to­tal of 50,482 people will at­tend this year’s gaokao, an in­crease of 2,865 people com­pared with last year. About 3,254 teach­ers will take charge of mon­i­tor­ing this year’s ex­am­i­na­tion.
