The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology has released an example of a mark sheet-type question image of the physics and world history of the "University Admissions Applicant Academic Ability Evaluation Test (tentative name)" that replaces the National Center Test for University Admissions.Physics evaluates the ability to collect, consider and analyze information from experiments, and world history evaluates the ability to read historical materials and consider them from multiple angles.

 According to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, examples of problems in physics and world history were submitted to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's Council of Experts.Physics has questions such as finding the power generated by the solar cells of a solar car that runs at a constant speed.It is designed to evaluate the ability to collect data from given information and to formulate and test hypotheses.
In world history, the question was asked whether it would be possible to grasp changes in the politics and economy of each country and region from graphs showing changes in the gross domestic product (GDP) of Japan, China, Western Europe, and the former Soviet Union.The content emphasizes the ability to consider from multiple angles, set hypotheses, and judge suitability based on rationale, while associating with multiple historical events.
The number of correct answers is not limited to one, and there are several that exist, and there are also questions that allow you to select all the correct answers without limiting the number of answers to one.This is a big difference from past center exams.

 In the academic ability evaluation test for university entrance applicants, the direction is to introduce descriptive questions in Japanese and mathematics while leaving mark sheet questions.We will continue to consider the difficulty level of the problem at the expert meeting based on this image example.
