High school ratings available at donga.com

Posted December. 28, 2000 20:08,   


High school students' academic scores and auxiliary ratings are likely to count more this year in admission to college because the uniform scholastic aptitude tests by the Education Ministry failed to adequately differentiate college-bound applicants.

But high school seniors and their parents are bewildered and confused by the various methods of computation of credit points and the relative weight given the high school rating among different universities and colleges.

In order to help relieve the pressure on impatient students and parents, www.donga.com is offering a program to calculate the scores and gradings worked out by high schools for reference by the accepting institutions of higher learning.

This service is offered for a token fee at donga.com's college entrance corner. Users access the site and input the year of graduation and the score plus the students' grades on high school records and the benchmark the applicant is required to reach to enter the targeted college and department.

The high school grading automatic calculation service is linked to the donga.com notice column in the middle of the donga.com homepage. Users can also submit applications online through February at the 2001 donga.com university admissions corner.
