Limits eased on migrants' college exams


08:49, November 26, 2012

WHILE migrants' children in most cases will be allowed to sit for college entrance exams in Chinese cities where their parents work, some restrictions are still anticipated, especially in large cities such as Shanghai.

Provinces will begin to lift a ban that does not allow the children to sit for the exams if their parents don't have their household registration in the place where they live.

Northeast China's Heilongjiang and eastern Anhui and Jiangsu provinces will lift the ban next year, officials said.

Children of migrant workers working in Anhui will be able to take national college entrance exams, or gaokao, there without having to return to the place of their household registration.

But they will have equal rights as local exam students only if they have attended high schools in the province for three consecutive years.

About 2,000 migrant students attend high schools in Anhui, and 300 of them are expected to take the gaokao exams in the province, according to local government statistics.

East China's Shandong, Fujian and Jiangxi provinces will follow suit in 2014, the Beijing News reported last Friday.
