DURHAM, N. H. – The University of New Hampshire has unveiled a program designed to attract Chinese students with high scores on a national exam in China.
The gaokao is the nation’s rigorous college entrance examination administered in June over two days. Nearly 10 million students are set on the exam this year.
Chinese high school graduates would have to submit their gaokao scores, take an English test, undergo a video-interview and submit their transcripts.
University spokeswoman Erika Mantz says the program is a part of the school’s obligation to the top of the international applicants.
The total Chinese students at the university is 357.
The university says that it is the hope of streamlining the application process, so interested students beginning in January, instead of waiting for a full year.
