budget of tens of thousands

  After the college entrance examination, many parents chose to buy mobile phones and computers in advance for their children to go to college, and electronic products became popular again.

  Major merchants have also launched preferential policies one after another, slogan "College Entrance Student In-House Purchase Meeting" to compete for customers.

For example, Huawei launched a "new three-piece set of college entrance examination" in offline stores in Liaoning, and the official website price was reduced by 400 yuan.

  However, compared with previous years, this year's offline storefronts are slightly "desolate".

A clerk at the Beijing Mobile Business Office said that many people are used to coming to the store to look at their mobile phones and make an online purchase after choosing them.

  While the salesperson is actively promoting sales, parents are also making difficulties.

  "The mobile phone that my child likes is more expensive than my own." Mr. Liu from a fourth-tier city in the north complained, "Nowadays children like to play games, and they have high performance requirements for mobile phones and computers." Mr. Liu Tell that although many merchants are now advertising discounts, in fact, there are no discounts on flagship phones or new models of various brands.

"Only a few designated models have discounts, but the kids didn't take it."

  It is understood that the current price of flagship mobile phones from various countries is on the rise, easily over 5,000 yuan; on the computer side, the price of general games is between 5,000-7,000 yuan, and if you pursue configuration, it even costs 20,000-30,000 yuan.

For families in third- and fourth-tier cities, it is indeed a considerable expense.

  Nevertheless, many parents are still willing to meet the needs of their children.

"I discussed with my child that you can choose the best mobile phone and computer, and buy the more regular configuration for the other." Mr. Liu told

Training institutions preferential solicitation

  In addition to eating, drinking and having fun, many candidates also choose to use this holiday to enrich themselves, and a competition on the "starting line" kicked off again.

  Ms. Qiu told that her niece took the college entrance examination this year. As soon as the college entrance examination was over, she persuaded her niece to sign up to learn to drive.

"When my child just finished the college entrance examination, I felt sorry for him to study hard, so I didn't force him to apply for a class. Now the driving test policy has been changed, and learning to drive is more difficult than before, so he is even more reluctant to go." Did not report it, becoming the biggest regret.

"I regret it now when I think about it." She said that the vacation after the college entrance examination is a good time to catch up with others, and hope that her niece will not relax.

  In the wave of "learning to drive for all people", many parents and graduates regard driving as a necessary skill for the future.

Candidate Zhai Ning went to the driving school to sign up for driving a few days after the exam, “I didn’t really want to go out to play, so I just signed up for the driving school. Anyway, I have plenty of time, so I should prepare for the future.” He said, “It may not be the future. You really drive on the road, but you must have a driver’s license."

  In the "golden age" of learning to drive, major driving schools also introduced preferential policies for candidates.

A coach from a driving school in Beijing told that they currently offer C1 and C2 crash courses, both with prices around 4,000, and college entrance examination candidates can exempt the tuition fee of 200 yuan with the admission ticket.

  Some students who have obtained a driver's license said that when looking for a driving school, you must ask about the contents of the charges.

"Some driving school charges include the test fee, but you can take the test again for free; some driving schools have to pay the test fee by themselves, and you must pay extra when you go to the test room to practice the car." He reminded that before signing up, you must carefully watch whether the driving school is qualified. And the specific situation of training, otherwise it will be a torture.

  Not only the driving test, but the language training classes are also favored by college entrance examination candidates and parents.

Chinanews found that despite the impact of the epidemic, many people have given up the idea of ​​studying abroad, but the TOEFL and IELTS training courses are still popular.

For example, a training institution launched the "IELTS intensive training class", which can enjoy a discount of 40% to 70% based on the English scores of the college entrance examination, and a 10% discount for college level four and six, and small language classes.

  "Although many students are currently on the sidelines of studying abroad due to the epidemic, there are still people who are ready to study abroad in advance." A visa agency in Shanghai said, "U.S. student visas were suspended for half a year, and now they are back to normal, but those who apply for visas There are not many people.” She said that the current epidemic and changes in overseas study policies have become the main factors affecting students' willingness to study abroad.

Be rational before spending spree

  In recent years, the development of the "post college entrance examination economy" has been accompanied by voices of doubt.

Price fraud, medical beauty scams, traps for studying abroad...Similar news has to "dominate the screen" for a period of time after the exam every year.

  For senior high school graduates, who have just stepped out of school and do not have rich social experience, it is easy to be confused by false propaganda.

In particular, there are endless chaos in the education and medical aesthetics markets. Some businesses take advantage of the eagerness of students and parents to "win at the starting line" and take advantage of the violent "fishing" of the graduation season.

It is easy to spend money and difficult to defend rights, which has become a distress for many students and parents.

On June 10th, the candidates walked out of the examination room with a smile on their faces at the entrance examination center of the High School Affiliated to Beijing People's University.

On the same day, the 2021 college entrance examination in Beijing ended.

  Buy high-end mobile phones and the best clothes.

"As a compensation for the child's college entrance examination." This is the psychology of most parents.

Although the "quasi-college students" have not yet entered the society, they are about to begin their independent university life.

How to establish a correct and rational concept of consumption and persuade children not to consume blindly is of vital importance to the future development of children. Even in the moment when they should be "relaxed", they should not be ignored.

  Even though many people criticize this carnival-style consumption, the increasing number of college entrance examinations and the ever-increasing education market have made the fermentation of the "post college entrance examination economy" inevitable. Strengthening market supervision and guiding candidates with correct consumption outlook can promote their return to rationality and form a benign market order. (Finish)
