Beijing : Authorities have decided to give Extra test numbers to children of Doctors and medical and paramedical staff treating the dreaded corona virus in China’s province of Hubei.
In China’s education system, the process of examinations is very rigorous and students face stiff competition for admission to the best schools, and parents feel that their children’s future in the best universities is based on good numbers and then hence Admission opportunities increase for them in best institutions.
Local authorities told the French news agency that in the ongoing war against the Corona virus in China, children from medical staff will be given extra numbers in school and higher education enrollment requests.
According to officials, children of medical staff who take the admission test this year will be given an additional 10 points in the exam (Entry Test Examination), while younger children of medical staff will be given preference for admission to the kindergarten by Local government authorties authorities.
Chinese people, on the other hand, say it is unfair for the government to provide this facility only to medical staff working in Hubei.
A user expressing his views on Twitter-style social media platform ‘Weibo’ wrote that
“Giving additional points to children is just wrong, and then it is even more unfair to give the extra points to the medical staff of Hubei Province only and only because other provinces are also helping to cope with the virus”
In addition, provincial officials said at a press conference that more than 32,000 medical workers have been sent from different provinces of China to Hubei.
Some people said that these children do not deserve this grant.
Another user wrote it is unfair to allow that children will get benefit from the hard work of their parents.
While another user said that giving extra points in this way would make our educational system suffer.
