School trial lets students 'borrow' scores for exams

By Cang Wei in Nanjing ( China Daily ) Updated: 2017-02-01 07:36:52

Students at a secondary school in Nanjing can now "borrow" scores to help them pass exams in a move aimed at reducing academic pressure.

Nanjing No 1 Middle School in Jiangsu province launched the nation's first "grade bank" in November and has so far made loans to 13 struggling students, allowing them to reach passing marks in tests they had failed.

Like most loans, however, students must repay them with interest - in this case, gaining extra points in later tests or carrying out presentations or experiments in class.
