Ahead of the "Common Test for University Admissions", the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology has decided to pass or fail the individual entrance exams to each university including national universities because the students could not take both the main exam and the supplementary exam due to the influence of the new corona. We have decided to make an unusual request to do so.

At the same time, it is a policy to make it possible for the admission period to be after April by additional examinations.

The "Common Test for University Admissions" will be held on the 15th and 16th of this weekend, and the additional exam will be held on the 29th and 30th of this month. The number of applicants has reached about 530,000, 864 nationwide. It will be used for entrance exams at universities and other institutions.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology will make a pass / fail judgment based on the results of individual entrance examinations at national, public and private universities that are planning to use the common test for students who could not take this test or supplementary test due to the spread of the new corona infection. It turns out that we have decided on a policy to request.

In addition, for students who did not have the opportunity to take additional exams or transfer exams in the individual entrance exams of each university, we request that new opportunities for additional exams be provided through interviews and "comprehensive selection" based on essays. It is our policy to inform universities nationwide that it will be possible to enroll after April.

Regarding the selection of new students, the university is required to announce it by the summer of the previous year, and it is unusual for the government to make such a request at this time when the full-scale entrance examination begins.
