Worker-Peasant-Soldier students (工农兵学员) were Chinese students who enrolled in colleges between 1970 and 1976, during the later part of the Cultural Revolution (1966–1976). They were accepted not for their academic qualifications, but rather for the "class background" of their parents. Children of workers, peasants, and soldiers were "Five Red Categories" and enjoyed privileges during the Cultural Revolution.[citation needed]
