Col­leges en­forc­ing aca­demic stan­dards

China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

More uni­ver­si­ties in China are raising aca­demic re­quire­ments, with stu­dents who per­form poorly fac­ing de­lays in grad­u­a­tion or a down­grad­ing of de­grees. Huazhong Uni­ver­sity of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy in Wuhan, Hubei prov­ince, down­graded 18 stu­dents from a bach­e­lor’s de­gree to an as­so­ciate de­gree be­cause they fell short of the school’s aca­demic stan­dards. Ac­cord­ing to a reg­u­la­tion is­sued by the uni­ver­sity last year, un­der­grad­u­ate stu­dents who don’t meet the re­quire­ments are given a warn­ing. Af­ter two warn­ings, they are trans­ferred to an as­so­ciate-level school. At most uni­ver­si­ties in China, stu­dents who don’t achieve enough cred­its are given a fi­nal chance to take the ex­ams they failed, which are usu­ally eas­ier than the pre­vi­ous ones.
