6 +1 +3 “is” a step forward “

Since that day, ZQ Nanya Vice-Chancellor has been back and forth across the country enrollment within 10 days will be running all over the eight provinces of Shandong, Fujian, Sichuan.It is understood that the STSP large, planned enrollment of 180 people, all in Tiqian Pi, science and engineering major categories of admission, enrollment of 40 in Guangdong Province, Shandong, Fujian, Sichuan, Hubei and other provinces move 20. The
STSP general entrance examination for comprehensive evaluation of admission mode “, that is to apply the test of the school’s students in the national college entrance examination, the ability to participate in school organizations. College entrance examination scores accounted for 60 percent of high school stage usually results accounted for 10%, the STSP organizations ability test scores accounted for 30%, the final form of the candidate’s achievements, and merit by the candidates score.
STSP retest the students’ creative ability and overall quality of the writing test, including memory, imagination, attention and insight.

Candidates usually results with the examination results as a reference for Examination provinces, usually results while high school students stage first and second grade final exam average results prevail.
ZQ, The STSP big this year, “6 +1 +3″ enrollment model is mainland universities did not implement, more similar to the admissions program of the Hong Kong universities in mainland China, towards the goal of “a step forward”.
compromise backward “or” cautious progressive “?
before approval of the “6 +1 +3″ enrollment program, ZQ had told Xinhua reporters that school enrollment plan to the Ministry of Education is recruiting students this year, 180 people in the assessment of the way, the college entrance examination scores of students accounted for 40% the weekdays achievements and STSP comprehensive ability test scores each accounted for 30%.
to “6 +1 +3 4 +3 +3 HKALE share from small to big, some people think this is a” compromise “and was” pacified “.
ZQ responded that this is for cautious results this year is the first year of implementation of this model, do not know the usual results can accurately and to what extent, do not know the proficiency test to what extent the success, so it this adjustment.
achievements structural changes reverie, into the early batches of enrollment, has also drawn people in the industry questioned, for which the STSP large “reform” conduct “a step backwards”. 21st Century Education Research Institute XiongBingJi published article said: “Nanya large enrollment this year to implement, can not be regarded as independent entrance, but plans to focus on the admission, this means that the the STSP autonomy Enrollment blocked.” South enrollment patterns, HKUST is currently practiced in more than 80 mainland universities ‘self-enrollment’ approach also badly. “
XiongBingJi the focus is included in the centralized admission Tiqian Pi enrollment, he thinks, as long as included in the centralized admission, its nature changed, Forms Pick the right to control by government departments, the school has only limited autonomy, Therefore, it is not truly independent entrance.
ZQ previously in an interview, also said: “The ideal thing is often not possible in one step, every step need to be balanced in all aspects should be coordinated, otherwise it is easy to roll-over.”
HKALE accounting for whether the school be?
China’s college enrollment since 2003, starting from the initial single-school examinations, later to form the number of school exam, in general, in the form of written test for interview, the final school based on the results of the independent recruitment of 10 of the College Entrance Examination drop to 60 points to mention the preferential policies, commonly known as “points”. Until this year, a total of 80 colleges and universities with independent enrollment eligibility.
industry that the STSP large this year’s admissions program is not the ideal of self-enrollment, ZQ, Shandong University, also acknowledged this. So, What is the ideal self-enrollment program, the next step is how to get there?deputy director Liu industry of
Shandong University Higher Education Research Center said that the ideal self-enrollment program, a more consistent understanding is to expand the autonomy of universities admissions. The current social right STSP large questioned, mainly that “autonomy” is not enough.
XiongBingJi and other experts believe that the self-enrollment is not necessarily to completely abandon the college entrance examination, but not to the college entrance examination as the only yardstick, the college entrance examination scores only as a reference to one of the factors of admission.
“national long-term education reform and development plan (2010-2020) and also the direction of the reform of examination and enrollment system for unified entrance examination for basic, combined with examination of the academic standards and overall quality of assessment of merit.
the college entrance examination as a “basic approach”, while the combination of academic proficiency test and the overall quality of evaluation, the college entrance examination results whether we should account for what proportion is more appropriate? Liu industry’s view, this can not be generalized to the educational goals of each school and school characteristics, there will be a different judge.
“If the country can release the discretion to determine college entrance examination accounted for, let each school to determine, will be a big step towards the ideal self-enrollment,” said Liu industry. (Reporter Lou e)
