I attended gaokao five years ago. I guess there must be many changes now. Actually I took gaokao twice. There are quite a few students like me who took gaokao more than once. I have more than one classmate who took gaokao three times and eventually ended up in a good or okay university. Gaokao is so important for us, especially students in rural places, to receive a better education in big cities. For the sake of putting all the energy and concentration onto study, students who are going to attend gaokao are also privileged at home. Students do not need to bother to do anything except study to prepare for gaokao. I remember a news story saying that a student was told that his parent passed away only after he finished gaokao. Anyway, all for gaokao. If there is more than one system to evaluate students' knowledge proficiency, students might distribute their energy to other things, like music or gym.But there is another problem, the imbalanced distribution of education resources will weaken the multi-assessment system, since it is remote and backward.(More)
