More than 83 percent of university entrance examination candidates will realize their dream of entering a university this year, an increase of 5 percent on last year, as a result of easier exams and fewer participants, said an official with the Beijing Education Examination Authority.

Some 80,000 students sat this year's gaokao, or college entrance exam, in Beijing and universities will admit 83.99 percent. The enrollment rate for science students will reach a record high of 91.92 percent while 69.05 percent of liberal arts students will be enrolled, said Zang Tiejun, vice-director of the authority.
