Sample answer: I don’t really have a favorite subject as of this year. I guess I haven’t really found it yet. Maybe once I start college this year I’ll know. But for now, I’m saying English only because foreign language intrigues me and also because it's so easy.
Sample answer: My favorite subject is anything relating to science. I have to know how and why about everything. I am very interested in earth science and biology.
Sample answer: I can't get enough of biology or any science for that matter. I really enjoy knowing how everything around me works. I also like to know why it works, which is why I enjoy learning the evolutionary aspect of the biology that I am taught. If anyone has anything interesting related
to science to talk about I'm always free to have a little conversation. I'm always interested in learning new things. Your answer:
How many subjects do secondary (high) school students usually have to study?

Optional: physics, chemistry and biology or history, geography and politics. science & arts
Do many secondary (high) school students go on to university?
Sample answer: Yes, around 70% of the students who have attended the college entrance examination got accepted by universities. With the restriction on re-attending classes after failing the examination, this number will grow bigger. I guess students believe that a higher education will help them stand more chance of getting an ideal job.

I have a college degree which I spent 5 years of my life working towards. I feel like if I go to work at a burger joint, college was a waste and I could have worked there without going to college. I would feel pressure from friends who have gotten jobs in engineering and others who see me in a job which I could have obtained without a degree. I know I can do a burger joint job, but I don't know if I should wait for my engineering job to come or if I should just join the workforce. If I joined the workforce I would still be looking for an engineering job, just less frequently. I really want an engineering job, but I'm not sure what to do now. Is education in your country free?
Chinese public schools are free of charge through high school, but parents pay for school uniforms and some supplies (backpack, pencils, etc). Some parents choose to send their children to private schools. Most private primary, middle, and high schools in China charge tuition ranging from 2,000 to 10,000 yuan per semester. However, ex-pat schools in Shanghai and Beijing are the most expensive in the country and charge 70,000 to 100,000 yuan per semester.
If you go to the school within your district, or the school associated with your parents' hukou, then it is free, barring books and activities fees. If you get accepted to a school outside your district, then you have to pay tuition. Tuition fees vary from town to town and province to province. Many schools in the large cities require a deposit from parents to "hold" a seat for their child for the entire six years of primary school.

Do students have to wear uniforms at schools in your country?
Sample answer: Yes, most schools in my country require their students to wear uniforms, especially on Monday because it’s part of the school routine to hold National Flag raising ceremony. Besides, Uniforms are the FOUNDATION of discipline. It encourages discipline and schools pride. Sample answer: Mostly private schools have uniforms for their students, it’s kind of like an identification of their
students, while most public schools have uniforms but are not compulsory to wear, as Public schools are governmental schools and the government tries to keep all schools equal but not to differentiate public schools from one another. Tips

Why did you choose this subject/major?
I chose this major because I enjoy science, and the hospital environment. The human body is incredibly interesting and as a nurse I can not only help people but be an essential part in saving lives every day. The salary of a nurse anesthetist is also very high so that also played a role in my decision. The schools I applied to also had good nursing programs. Sample answer:
I chose psychology because learning about the mind is so interesting to me. I would love to be a clinical psychologist. I really love helping people and want to make sure everyone has as good of a life as they can. I want to make a career out of it.
My major is architecture. House plans have always
fascinated me, but it wasn't until I took the class last year that I discovered my passion for it. It became my favorite class. I enjoy making my own creations and seeing a big blueprint at the end of the work as a result of my own hard work.
My major is Global Affairs. Well because I love politics, geographic, travel and I see a world as one country with no borders. I will die before this becomes reality but I will always fight for it.
I chose to major in Sociology, because I want to help people. With this degree, you can work for the State, in hospitals, nursing homes, and different institutions like drug rehabs. When I chose my major, people said a degree in sociology is a waste of time and the job outlook is not good.
I am in law school and I chose it because I have always wanted to be a lawyer. I have a love/hate relationship with it. It is difficult and hard, but it is the only way to achieve my dreams....I cannot wait until this coming semester when I actually get an internship or paying job where I get to put my
knowledge to work and get my hands dirty so to speak.
