It would be very helpful to have a link to an official sample test, or even better -- a retired actual test, in the way that many standardized tests release old versions for study purposes. I realize the test is in Chinese, but presumably the English and Math sections should be somewhat accessible to non-Chinese speakers.
Also, the format of the test remains unclear -- are these essays? multiple choice questions? short, free-response questions, etc? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:15, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
Can anyone provide a rough idea of percentiles and cutoffs for most schools? It would help put scores into perspective. Also, the article doesn't mention the acceptance rates to chinese univerisities- what are they?
- No one does percentiles in China. For PKU for instance if they have say 100 slots for Beijingers, they take the top 100 scorers who applied for PKU from Beijing. Percentiles do not matter at all since it varies so much year by year and major by major. Yialanliu (talk) 20:27, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
- Aili, would you like to elaborate on this? --Roland 10:23, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
To Ashmoo: What kind of source do you expect? Those are a summarization of numerous news and stories and personal experiences. --Roland 10:26, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Can someone put what gao kao is out of? you really don't get a strong grasp of gao kao on this page.
- The max score is different for each province. So it is not comparable across provinces. At the same time, each province tests differently so the % don't matter either. Yialanliu (talk) 20:26, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
College --> Higher/Tertiary educaiton
That's the plain name of the examination, and plus, "college" does not mean higher education in most parts of the English-speaking world outside the United States. There, "college" is more likely to mean secondary colleges than tertiary. --PalaceGuard008 (Talk) 03:37, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
I think a lot of things need citations here as someone else metioned already. If someone could go through this and cite what they wrote or else it's going to be need pruning with new numbers since statistics that should be easy to find (180 PKU admissions for Beijingers, percentages from various provinces in 2010 who got into top ranked colleges), I am not able to find via Google and Google Scholar. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yialanliu (talk • contribs) 20:31, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
