In the recommendation entrance examination of the University of Tokyo, which will be held from 2016, there were only 10 applicants for the recruitment of about 100 people in all 173 faculties, and the number of applicants was reduced between the Faculty of Economics and the Faculty of Pharmacy.It is believed that the recruitment conditions were so strict that only a handful of super high school students could apply, such as demanding good results in the National Center Test for University Admissions in January next year and seeking outstanding achievements in science contests.


A high school recommendation is required for application, and a quota has been set for each school, one male and one female.In the center test, about 1% or more of the correct answers are required, and we are also seeking outstanding achievements that can be said to be super high school students.We will announce the results on February 8th next year after the center test.

Those who have passed the general entrance examination choose a department to enroll, and then choose a faculty in the second year.However, those who pass the recommendation entrance examination are supposed to decide the faculty from the time of application.It is perceived as an expression of the University of Tokyo's desire to accept ultra-high school students who have a clear sense of purpose.
