Less than two weeks ahead of China's national college entrance examination, or gaokao, which will take place on June 7 and 8, the Ministry of Education has signed contracts with higher education admission commissions of all provinces, regions and municipalities to ensure a fair, transparent national exam across the country. Such measures include installing monitoring cameras at every testing venue and mobile signal shielding.

According to the contract, the ministry takes charge of overall assigning and monitoring of the gaokao in 2014. Local higher education admission commissions should provide a sound and transparent testing environment. They are responsible to work closely with the ministry to wipe out group cheating in the gaokao, and act efficiently toward unexpected accidents that may happen during the two-day exam.

About 9.12 million people participated in the exam in 2013, widely reckoned as the largest examination in Asia.
