The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) will make public comments from the public until the end of November on the interim summary of the university entrance examination reforms compiled by the High School Connection System Reform Council (chaired by Yuichiro Anzai, Chairman of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) and linked to the next course of study for high schools. We are looking for.There are many doubts about the interim summary, such as lack of specificity and anxiety about whether it will be achieved as intended, so it seems that the reaction of the people will be attracting attention.

According to the Ministry of Education, the period for soliciting opinions begins on October 10st and ends on November 1th.We accept from the opinion submission form on the e-government general contact Egab website.The High School Connection System Reform Council plans to further deliberate and finalize the report with reference to the voices of the people.
The interim summary was approved at the end of August and published in September.Two new tests, such as the "University Admissions Achievement Evaluation Test (tentative name)" scheduled to start in 8, will be replaced with the National Center Test for University Admissions. The pillar is to change.
The "High School Basic Achievement Test (tentative name)", which will start in 2019 to measure learning outcomes, will be a trial period until 2022 when the next course of study will be introduced, and will be used for university entrance exams from 2023. ..
The target of the academic ability evaluation test is the third year of high school.It is held multiple times a year, and initially the questions are given in a selection formula and a short description formula.From 3, when the students studying in the next course of study will be in the third year of high school, we will also ask descriptive questions with a large number of characters and adopt a method of answering using a computer.Since "Mathematical Inquiry (tentative name)", which combines mathematics and science, will be a new subject in high school, our policy is to focus not only on knowledge but also on evaluation of thinking ability.
