Comprehensive selection and school-recommended selection have begun, and the 2022 entrance examination has begun in earnest.The results of mock exams at major prep schools have begun to appear, and some trends regarding the popularity of the undergraduate system of examinees are becoming apparent.Information systems are still very popular, and the number of new faculties and departments in this field is increasing.In addition to this, the 2022 entrance exam will focus on "jurisprudence" and "veterinarians".These two fields were hidden popular fields, such as the small decrease in the number of applicants even in the 2021 entrance examination, but they are notable fields in the 2022 entrance examination.

 

 

 

In the 2022 entrance examination, the decrease in the number of applicants for private universities has stopped declining.

 This spring, it was talked about that the number of applicants for private universities has decreased significantly in the 2021 entrance examination, but what will happen in the 2022 entrance examination next year?On the university entrance examination information site of Sundai Preparatory School, the trends of aspirations for each faculty system of the mock examination conducted in September are posted.Looking at this, the number of applicants for national and public universities is almost flat (99% compared to the previous year). Given that the 18-year-old population will decline by XNUMX, its popularity is solid.

 Over the last few years, national universities have been developing new educational programs one after another by establishing or reorganizing faculties.In addition, public universities are also making advanced movements such as new universities and new faculties, and the choices from the perspective of examinees are expanding.Next year, we will see dynamic changes such as the merger of Osaka City University and Osaka Prefecture University, and the birth of Osaka Public University.As an aside, when the current Tokyo Metropolitan University became Tokyo Metropolitan University, it was said that it would be a little-known spot for some reason, and as a result, the number of applicants increased.However, it seems that there were many applicants from outside the Tokyo metropolitan area, and there was a phenomenon that many were absent on the day of the examination.Candidates may have the image that the integration of public universities will increase the capacity and make it easier to enter.Certainly, the faculties that were in both Osaka City University and Osaka Prefecture University, such as the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Engineering, and the Faculty of Nursing, will have an image that the magnification will be relaxed from the perspective of the examinees because the capacity of the faculty will increase due to the integration. No wonder.Depending on whether the average score for the Common Test for University Admissions goes up or down, there is a possibility that applicants will come in.

 On the other hand, the total number of applicants for private universities is flat (99% compared to the previous year) according to the university entrance examination information site of Sundai Preparatory School.The number of applicants for private universities has decreased by more than 2021 in the 50 entrance examination this spring, but the number of concurrent applicants per examinee is expected to return to the same level as usual, so there will be no such drop next year. It seems to be.
