English Entrance Exam Scores Down

Average scores from the recently held national university entrance exams were published on Wednesday. The tests were held nationwide last Saturday and Sunday. The average score for the English language test was 116.54 out of a maximum of 200 points (58.27%). It was also down noticably from last year's 64.87%, and was by far the lowest of the five foreign language tests: Chinese (87.76%), Korean (78.69%), German (67.48%) and French (67.16%). 44 students will be retaking the foreign language tests at the Tohoku Institute of Technology this weekend, due to their test time being mistakenly cut short.
