The response status of each university due to the new coronavirus infection in the 2021 entrance examination was generally announced.Some universities, such as Yokohama National University, have canceled the individual examinations, so it is essential to check for changes in the entrance examination schedule, subjects, methods, etc.In addition, many private universities require you to enter "independence, etc." at the time of application for the 2021 entrance examination, and more and more national and public universities are newly imposing "reasons for aspiration".The burden on the examinees at the time of application is increasing, so I would like to finish what I can prepare now.

An increasing number of universities are imposing new "interviews" and "reasons for aspirations" at national and public universities.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology has set up an HP that summarizes the response status of each university in the 2021 entrance examination due to the new coronavirus infection, and links to each university are also set.You can check the correspondence status of each university on this site.In addition to this, there are special pages for national and public universities and private universities on Kawaijuku's university entrance examination information site "Kei-Net", and the contents are updated from time to time.

 Students may have forgotten about how to deal with the new coronavirus infection, but one of the three elements of academic ability is "the attitude of learning in collaboration with various people with independence." As a result of the high school connection reform that evaluates "" even in general selection, more universities are imposing "interviews", requesting submission of "reasons for aspiration", and scoring "investigation". I am.

 For example, Hitotsubashi University scores the contents of the survey from a qualitative point of view when applicants line up with the same score on the pass / fail line, and scores the survey in order from the one with the highest overall score.In the case of scoring such surveys, the examinee himself / herself cannot prepare.On the other hand, for the selection of applicants who are on the pass / fail line, such as Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, "self-evaluation (checklist) about what you worked on in high school and your motivation for the future", "in high school If you use "working with independence (up to 200 characters)", you can still create this 200-character sentence.

 In addition, Tohoku University's "Independence Evaluation Checklist", Yokohama National University "Self-Recommendation Form", Kochi University "Activity Report", Saga University "Characteristic Point Addition System", Nagasaki University "Paper Interview", etc. are prepared in advance. If you do so, you will be able to reduce the burden at the time of application.In the case of national and public universities, each university has its own efforts, so it is not unified, and if you change the application school in a hurry after self-scoring the common test, you may not be ready in time. Therefore, if you prepare a complete document of "reasons for aspiration" and "activities that you worked on in high school" from now on, you will be able to arrange them according to the university you are applying for in case of emergency.
