Little Change in English Test Scores

The average results from last weekend's "senta shiken" university entrance exams were announced yesterday. The exams were held over two days at 640 schools across the country. The most popular tests were in foreign languages, sat by over 536,000 students. In the English test, the average score was 129.74, out of a maximum 200 (64.87%). This was up by about 3.5 points from last year. Averages for other languages were 141.09 for French, 144.56 for German (way up from last year's 106.58), 154.70 for Chinese and 156.72 for Korean (down from 174.28). The text of the English exam is available on the Web site.
