ZHANG YIWEN, a 10-year-old girl from Central China's Henan province, who took the college entrance examination, or gaokao, this year, has been admitted as a formal student to Shangqiu Institute of Technology. comments:

Zhang is one of the perhaps hundreds of "minor" students to be admitted to a college this year. Of the about 3,000 freshmen enrolled by Peking University, 340 were born after 2000, with the youngest being just 14 years old.

But Zhang is different from them, too, because she never attended compulsory education school. Instead, she studied in a training school run by her father, who thinks quite highly of her. According to reports, he hopes his daughter would continue studying after graduation and get a PhD before her 20th birthday.
