Nationwide Scholastic Aptitude Test

A nationwide test of the scholastic ability of high school students, the first in 40 years, is currently being carried out. The test was devised amidst concerns over the recent cuts made in the national syllabus and will serve as a benchmark of current academic levels. Some 105,000 third-year students are asked to choose three out of seven subjects, including English, Japanese and Mathematics, and their level is determined by a written test. The test is administered by the National Institute for Educational Policy Research and results should be published next autumn.
