What Do We Look For?
We are looking for top students in a number of ways. While we only take about 1000 students in each freshmen class, we do consider a student's academic excellence, their long-term intellectual viability and their personal fit within the SUSTech community.
What Do We Do?
We use our own "6+3+1" evaluation system. Our comprehensive evaluation admission model has eliminated the disadvantage found in traditional systems of examination and admissions, that tend to be the focus of one-sided exam-oriented education systems. Since its implementation in 2012, SUSTech has continued to lead higher education reform in China, specifically when it comes to admissions as they relate to the national college examination system.
Under the 6+3+1 system, 60% of a student's admission score comes from their National College Entrance Examination score, known as their gaokao score. An additional 30% comes from our own admissions systems - 25% coming from our academic apparatus test and 5% from an admission interview. The final 10% comes from their efforts in high school. 3% of the total comes from the special skills that every student has, and 7% comes from a student's high school transcript.
When we look at each student, we will admit a student that has showed great innovative abilities in the evaluation process, even if they don't have the highest national college entrance examination. On the other hand, there's less chance of SUSTech admitting a student with a high gaokao score that has a low score in our academic apparatus score.
