The annual college entrance examination has just ended, and "how to fill in the application" has become another multiple-choice question before candidates and parents.

  On June 23, the Ministry of Education issued an early warning: We solemnly remind the majority of candidates and parents that there are institutions or individuals in the society conducting "high-priced" voluntary reporting consultation activities to candidates and parents, and there are inaccurate policy interpretation, inaccurate information provision, and fee collection. Irregularities and even fraud.

  The Ministry of Education also emphasized that the relevant departments have never issued vocational qualification certificates such as "Voluntary Planners for the College Entrance Examination".

Some of the so-called "volunteer planners" of the agency are temporarily recruited social personnel, who guide candidates and parents according to the "lines" provided by the headquarters.

Parents not only overpay for the services of these agencies, they may also report wrongly.

  The Beijing News Shell Finance reporter also found that in the emerging industry of voluntary reporting services for the college entrance examination, institutions are mixed up and it is difficult to distinguish between true and false, and each order charges thousands to tens of thousands of yuan.

The emerging profession "Volunteer Planners for the College Entrance Examination" is also full of chaos. The qualification certificate can be obtained by paying for training. The authenticity of some certificates is difficult to check, and the institutions that endorse them are also doubtful.

The college entrance examination volunteer filling service charges a lot, and each order costs thousands to tens of thousands of yuan

  In the near future, all localities will successively release the results of the 2022 college entrance examination, and start the voluntary filling of the college entrance examination.

And some so-called volunteer service agencies for the college entrance examination and "voluntary planners for the college entrance examination" also smell the smell of money.

In addition to the so-called offline institutions in the education counseling industry, even some big Internet companies have entered the college entrance examination voluntarily to fill in the service track.

  The Beijing News Shell Finance reporter visited and found that there are currently no clear industry norms and qualification requirements for volunteer planners in the college entrance examination.

"Volunteer planners for the college entrance examination" generally have a low threshold for employment, but the fees are not cheap.

  An organization in Tianjin that provides voluntary reporting services for the college entrance examination told the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter, "With a college degree and 0 work experience, you can attend our online training course for voluntary planners for the college entrance examination, and you can take orders on our platform after the course is completed. , package allocation of sources."

  A number of agencies told reporters that the charges for each order range from several thousand yuan to tens of thousands of yuan.

  A teacher Zhang, who claimed to have 11 years of voluntary reporting service experience, told the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter: "The one-to-one full reporting service is 7,000 yuan, and the fee for answering all questions about the college entrance examination voluntary reporting within two hours is 2,000 yuan. ."

  An industry insider told the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter: "Generally one-to-one voluntary reporting services, parents in first-tier cities have strong economic strength, and the fees will be higher, while parents in second-, third- and fourth-tier cities will have less purchasing power, and the fees will be correspondingly lower. But there will also be cases where individual fourth-tier cities are more expensive than first-tier cities, and the reasons are very complicated.”

  The quotation of another volunteer planner for the college entrance examination also verified this industry insider's point of view. The quotation is between 6800-12800 yuan, and the price fluctuation is related to the province where the candidates are located.

When it was learned that the reporter was a candidate from the Beijing area, the volunteer planner for the college entrance examination quoted 12,800 yuan.

  Can the expensive "Voluntary Filling Service for College Entrance Examination" properly meet the needs of candidates and parents?

  The Beijing News Shell Finance reporter found that some college entrance examination voluntary filling service agencies only give voluntary filling service suggestions, and are ultimately not responsible for the admission results, and may even mislead candidates.

  Jin, a student from Shanghai, told the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter that the volunteer planner he hired for the college entrance examination at the beginning paid a lot of money to provide consulting services full of the planner's personal prejudice. University, misled him on the volunteer report.

  Student Liu from Gansu spent 6,000 yuan in June 2018 to purchase a one-to-one customized college entrance examination voluntary filling service provided by an institution.

He told the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter that this one-to-one customized service is completely worthless.

"They will provide a reference plan and do a career assessment based on my needs. Although I can always consult at the institution from the time the score comes out to the end of the report, I don't think my choice is perfect. Because they are only based on previous years' results. The data such as the score line delineates the range of schools and professional recommendations for me. The final choice is my own, and the effect is the same when I buy a volunteer card for a few hundred dollars. I gave up the choice of 985 universities in remote areas. I went to Shuangfei University in a first-tier city, but the results of the postgraduate research were not very satisfactory. If they suggested me to go to 985 University, my future might be different.”

The chaos of the training of volunteer planners in the college entrance examination: the certificate is a cottage, and there are training institutions that fake "Chinese prefixes" to issue certificates

  Many institutions that provide voluntary filling-in services for the college entrance examination are also engaged in the training of voluntary planners for the college entrance examination, such as Blue Whale International Education, Xiangyang Career and other institutions.

  The institutions that provide the training of "Volunteer Planners for the College Entrance Examination" are also mixed, and it is difficult to distinguish the true from the false.

  A staff member of an institution in Tianjin engaged in the training of volunteer planners for the college entrance examination told the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter, "You can apply for this course with a college degree and 0 work experience. The 'Voluntary College Entrance Examination Planner (Advanced) Certificate' produced by the Management Talent Training Center, and can sign up with the platform to become a part-time 'Voluntary College Entrance Examination Planner'."

  The training fee of this institution is quoted at 4980 yuan.

A few days later, when the staff of the training institution found that the reporter had no intention of paying for the training course, they took the initiative to reduce the price to 3,980 yuan, urging the reporter to take advantage of the promotion to place an order.

  When the reporter asked whether the certificate was recognized by the state, the staff member told the reporter, "Our certificate is recognized by both the state and the industry."

  In fact, the relevant departments have never issued vocational qualification certificates such as "Voluntary Planners for the College Entrance Examination".

  The staff member provided the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter with a professional skills training certificate for professional talents supervised by the "Advanced Management Talent Training Center of China Academy of Management Sciences" in March 2022. The professional name is: College Entrance Examination Volunteer Planning division.

It also provided the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter with the query website for the certificate - a website called "Central Management Institute Senior Management Talent Training Center".

  The website does not announce the contact information such as the telephone or email address of the "Central Management Institute Senior Management Training Center", but only announces its address "No. 12 Wanshou Road, Haidian District, Beijing" on the last page of the website.

This address does not have a house number.

  The reporter went to the address and found that "No. 12 Wanshou Road, Haidian District, Beijing" is located in a residential area called "Yard 12 Wanshou Road".

The hard work pays off. After on-the-spot visits and many inquiries, the reporter finally found the so-called "China Academy of Management Sciences (the font is traditional)" on the 6th floor of Block D, Wanshou Hotel, No. 12, Wanshou Road, Haidian District, Beijing.

  The Beijing News Shell Finance reporter interviewed the staff present at the institution as a consultant. The staff admitted that the so-called "China Academy of Management Science" does have a second-level branch called the "Senior Management Talent Training Center". In Office 606." When the reporter asked whether the certificate was supervised by the "Senior Management Talent Training Center", the staff at the scene told the reporter: "I don't know this issue, only the talents of the Senior Management Talent Training Center understand it. But I don't recommend you rashly. Go ask them." The reporter went to the 606 office where the senior management talent training center of the Central Management Institute mentioned by the staff member, knocked on the door and got no response.

  In fact, the "China Academy of Management Sciences" located on the 6th floor of Block D, Wanshou Hotel, No. 12A Wanshou Road, Haidian District, Beijing, is a fake institution.

The Beijing News Shell Finance reporter found out that the real China Academy of Management Science does not have a second-level branch of the so-called "Senior Management Talent Training Center", and there is no office location in Block D of Wanshou Hotel.

  A reporter from Shell Finance and Economics of the Beijing News found on the website of agency code and institution registration management that China Academy of Management Sciences is now a public institution organized by the China Association for the Promotion of Tourism and Cultural Resources Development, and its registered address is 8, Xiaotun Road, Fengtai District, Beijing. No. 4th Floor, Tower A, Zijinyuan Office Building.

  The operator of the China Tourism and Cultural Resources Development Promotion Association told the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter, "There are too many institutions pretending to be the China Academy of Management Sciences. The address displayed on the public institution registration management website).”

  On June 24, the reporter came to the China Academy of Management Sciences on the 4th floor of Tower A, Zijinyuan Office Building, No. 8 Xiaotun Road, Fengtai District, Beijing.

The staff present told the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter that the China Academy of Management Sciences does not have a secondary branch called the "Senior Management Talent Training Center". At the same time, he also said that the China Academy of Management Sciences is not allowed to Issuing the certificate, "There is only one China Academy of Management Sciences, and the so-called 'China Academy of Management Sciences' on the 6th floor of Building D, Wanshou Hotel, No. 12 Wanshou Road, Haidian District, Beijing, is fake." When asked about this institute in Tianjin When asked whether the institution providing the service of training volunteer planners for the college entrance examination had contact with the China Academy of Management Sciences, the staff member said: "There is no contact. Now all institutions that issue certificates in our name are involved in fraud."

  According to the provisions of paragraph 2 of Article 280 of the Criminal Law, those who forge the seals of companies, enterprises, institutions and people's organizations shall file a case.

How do consumers avoid pits and lightning

  Regarding the various chaos in the service industry of volunteering for the college entrance examination, Liu Junhai, director of the Institute of Commercial Law of Renmin University of China and professor of the Law School of Renmin University of China, said in an interview with the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter that when consumers purchase volunteering services for college entrance examinations, they should Do "clearly read the advertisements. Sign the contract seriously. Keep the evidence calmly, and protect your rights rationally in accordance with the law. Try not to buy the relevant training services of 'Volunteer Planners for the College Entrance Examination'. A single order is several thousand yuan or even tens of thousands of yuan. Why don't you make this fee yourself? So you must be optimistic about the money bag, the impulse is the devil. There will be no pie in the sky, but there will be traps on the ground, so consumers must learn to avoid pits and lightning."

  Liu Junhai also believes that the state should introduce relevant laws and regulations to standardize the mixed service market for voluntary filling of the college entrance examination.

At present, there are certain regulatory blind spots and vacuum areas in this industry.

While markets can fail, regulators should not.

When the market fails, the regulatory authorities should come forward, make good use of the authority granted by the law, and make full use of the authority granted by the law to protect the legitimate rights and interests of consumers.

Clearly crack down on and sanction illegal college entrance examination voluntary reporting services that infringe on consumers' rights and interests.

Consumer associations should also do a good job of warning about consumption, and do a good job of civil mediation for disputes that have arisen.
