The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) has indicated to the expert meeting that it will not hold multiple tests for the time being in the new test "University Admissions Applicant Academic Ability Evaluation Test (tentative name)" scheduled to be introduced in 2020 instead of the National Center Test for University Admissions. rice field.The multiple implementations were one of the highlights of the new exam, which removes the emphasis on knowledge, but due to consideration of the impact on the high school education schedule, we will continue to consider when to introduce it.

 According to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, conducting multiple tests has been considered as a pillar to change the one-shot game method by measuring the ability to think from the conventional knowledge bias.By adopting a new descriptive question, he said that the harmful effects of the one-shot game only by the mark sheet method would be alleviated to some extent, and he said that he would not do it for the time being.

 Regarding the new test, the expert meeting has set out the direction of conducting a descriptive test in Japanese and mathematics in advance, in addition to the mark type test similar to the center test.If the mark-type test is conducted in mid-January, which is the same as the center test, it will be necessary to conduct the descriptive test in December, considering the scoring period.
If this is done multiple times, the exam must be taken before the fall, which will inevitably have a major impact on high school classes, club activities, and the university that will be the venue for the exam.In addition, it seems that it is difficult to make an appropriate score by matching the difficulty of the exam questions to be conducted multiple times, and it seems that the policy is to continue the examination without conducting it for the time being.
As for the scoring period of the descriptive test, we have shown a trial calculation of about 80 days for a Japanese language question that answers in 4 characters and about 1 day for a math question that writes mathematical formulas.The total scoring period that combines these is said to be about 10 to 30 days.

 The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology plans to hold expert meetings about twice a month to fill in the contents of the new test and announce the final summary by the end of March.
