The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology has informed educators such as universities, prefectural boards of education, and prefectural governors nationwide that it will postpone the postponement of the university entrance examination schedule for 2021 due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection.There have been calls from the National Association of High School Chiefs and others to postpone the exam schedule due to the lengthening of school closures.
According to the Ministry of Education, the 2021 university entrance exam will be the first common test for university entrance exams to replace the conventional center exam, and will be held on January 1th and 16th as originally planned.Although the postponement was postponed, additional exam dates were set on January 17 and 1 in consideration of the delay in learning due to the prolonged closure.
The choice of additional exam date is allowed from the time of application and can be due to delays in learning. Additional exam days will be set on February 1 and 30 in case the examinee becomes ill on January 31 and 2.The difficulty level of the retest will be the same as the first schedule, and the score will not be adjusted.
The schedule for general entrance examinations conducted by each university will be the same as before, after February.However, for subjects that are often taken in the third year of high school, we are requesting each university to devise the scope of application.At the same time, the setting of the additional test date is also requested.
Comprehensive selection (formerly AO entrance exam) will be delayed by two weeks from September 2th.The application for school-recommended selection (formerly recommended entrance examination) will continue in November.Comprehensive and school-recommended selection surveys will accept applications even if the grades at the time of the third year of high school are not stated.
