Nation’s high school students sweat at “Center Test”

Date Posted: 2004-01-22

More than 530,000 students nationwide took part in the first part of the nation’s university entrance exams over the weekend. In the first round, every graduating high school student takes the same test, often called “Center Test.” The second parts of the tests are particular to each university and college, and are conducted later in the spring.

On average, those who wish to gain access to state owned universities need to get at least a 75 percent score on the center test. To enter one of the most prestigious universities in the nation, a student must post 90% scores. Many students labor night and day before the exams, often attending a cram school at the cost of $5,000 per year or more.

It is often said that in the Japanese system, once the tests are over and students get to their university, for the next four years they do nothing but party.
