Top mainland universities still popular
Latest Updated by 2006-07-24 08:53:14

PRESTIGIOUS mainland universities still maintain a competitive edge in enrolling the cream of high school graduates despite competition from institutions of higher learning in Hong Kong, Xinhua said Saturday (July 22).

Up to now, a total of 79 high school graduates who achieved the maximum score at this year's National College Entrance Examination (NCEE) have gained admission to Beijing University and Qinghua University, two of the top-ranked institutions in the country, the Xinhua report said.

Of the 48 students enrolled by Beijing University, 33 scored the maximum score in arts and 15 achieved the same in science. Statistics show that more than 60 percent of the top 10 students in science in different regions opted to apply to Beijing University while nearly 90 percent of the top 10 students in arts chose to study in Beijing University.

Qinghua University was not far behind, either. Thirty students with the highest marks in 22 regions have been enrolled by Qinghua University. The university is still popular among the best high school graduates.

Chen Yongcan, head of dean's office at Qinghua University, said the school might increase the amount of scholarships offered to students. The large amounts of scholarships offered by Hong Kong universities was an important reason behind some talented mainland students deciding to study in Hong Kong this year, the Xinhua report said.

The minimum score required by the University of Hong Kong this year is six points higher than Beijing University and one point higher than Qinghua University. Wong Yue-chim, deputy vice-chancellor of the University of Hong Kong, said it hoped to increase the number of mainland students enrolled next year.
