[P] . The college entrance examination is crucial for every student, every family, and even the entire society. Therefore, the college entrance examination must ensure fairness, impartiality, and transparency, ensuring that every student has a fair opportunity to participate in the examination and is not affected by any improper factors, which is almost a consensus among the whole country. According to the regulations of the Ministry of Education, college entrance examination candidates who are more than 15 minutes late are not allowed to enter the examination room. This is an insurmountable red line for all candidates. However, on the morning of June 8th, a student from Hongdu Middle School in Nanchang, Jiangxi, still entered the college entrance examination room after being 37 minutes late. Meanwhile, another piece of news that made it to the hot search was, "A candidate in Henan was unable to enter the exam room due to being late."
Two hot searches placed together are particularly eye-catching. After the news broke, people questioned the practice of Jiangxi Provincial Education Examination Yuan, believing that this practice violated the provisions of the college entrance examination, affected the fairness of the college entrance examination, and held a grievance against the examinee in Henan.
Some netizens also expressed appreciation for the humanized handling method in Jiangxi:
Let's take a look at the response of the Examination Yuan of Jiangxi Provincial Education: "Nanchang City suffered from extreme heavy rain that day. Based on the consideration of humanistic care and humanistic management for examinees, we reported the situation to the provincial Examination Yuan and decided to allow examinees to enter the examination room after obtaining consent."
This approach should or should not depend on which of the following situations this event belongs to: First, the local Examination Yuan felt "compassion" for the children who were late, seized the phone to apply to the superior department, and won the opportunity of this special approval for the children; Secondly, the rules for the college entrance examination clearly stipulate that "those who are late for more than 15 minutes due to force majeure shall only enter the examination room after being verified and approved by the higher education department". The Examination Yuan of Jiangxi Education acted according to the regulations and applied for special approval according to the regulations. If it really belongs to compliance and compliance, it is impossible not to mention it in the explanation of Jiangxi Provincial Education Examination Institute. Therefore, this matter may belong to the first scenario. From a human perspective, I particularly understand this approach; However, in terms of fairness in the college entrance examination, this approach should not be taken anymore. According to the regulations of the Ministry of Education, college entrance examination candidates who are more than 15 minutes late are not allowed to enter the examination room. According to this rule, it is obvious that 37 minutes have far exceeded the deadline. Giving a child special permission is unfair to other children who are late and excluded from the exam due to weather and other factors.
The true significance of this matter lies in whether it can inspire our education department to provide personalized "patches" to the college entrance examination system, and establish institutional and procedural guarantees for candidates who are late or absent due to uncontrollable reasons such as weather, nature, or illness. If there are such a series of systems and processes, all candidates who encounter extreme weather and other issues that result in being late can avoid regret by using special approval, which can also fully reflect the fairness and humanistic care of the system. Only by providing adequate protection from the system can we ensure that the fairness and Seriousness of the examination are maintained while giving consideration to humanistic care. For the child who was specially approved to enter the exam room, the lack of exam time and mentality have also been greatly affected, and it may be difficult to achieve ideal results in this exam. This also reminds candidates and their parents that during the college entrance examination, they should pay attention to the weather forecast and make sufficient plans. If conditions permit, they can choose to live near the exam venue to minimize the negative impact of the weather. What do you think of this issue?
