|Forty-five students of South University of Science and Technology did not take the college entrance exams Tuesday, the first day of the exams, Beijing News reports.
|Two classrooms were prepared for the exams, but no one took the exam papers. After 15 minutes, the exams were canceled.
|University President Zhu Qingshi said that students not taking the test is not a total denial of the college entrance exam system, and the exams are still a relatively fair way to select talent. However, not all students should have to take the exam.
The education system should allow the blossoming of various kinds of flowers, and South University of Science and Technology, which hasn't been recognized by the Department of Education, is one way for students to blossom, Zhu said.
