CHINA-NATIONAL COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION (CN)
NANNING, June 7, 2012 (Xinhua) -- Examinees of National College Entrance Examinations (NCEE) have hands gathered to encourage themselves before the exam at Nanning No. 14 Middle School in Nanning, capital of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, June 7, 2012. The NCEE, also known as "gaokao" in Chinese, is regarded as a destiny-shaping event for high schoolers. About 9.15 million people will take the exam on June 7 and 8 this year to vie for 6.85 million vacancies in the country's universities and colleges, according to a statement issued by the Ministry of Education on Tuesday. This year's admission rate is up nearly 3 percent year-on-year, and the number of exam takers is down by 2 percent, the statement said, adding that there are more applicants from relatively underprivileged western regions.
