      College English Test Certificate, Necessary or Not?

      摘要:China's Ministry of Education say they are planning reforms on the national College English Test. The test system will be carried out in major domestic universities on a trial basis this year and be implemented nationwide in 2007.Since the news released it has aroused much debate.

      教育部即将改革四六级考试。改革试行方案今年将在部分重点高校试点实行,预计到2007年在全国普及。对此,各方面反应不一。

      Anchor: China's Ministry of Education say they are planning reforms on the national College English Test, or CET, stating the test is no longer compulsory for college students.

      The news has aroused much debate. Some welcome the changes warmly, while others worry that there will be no standard for judging a college graduate's English ability.

      CRI's Na Lan has more.

      Reporter: For college students, this may be good news. While, for this year's university graduates, who are still busy looking for jobs, the news has aroused much concern.

      At a large job fair in Beijing, many college graduates say so far, the College English Test certificate is still one of the necessities when on the job hunt.

      (act)

      "Most of the jobs have listed the CET certificate as one of their employment requirements. Without that, it will be very hard to get a job."

      Many companies have stated that the CET test is the most popular and authoritative English test in China, making it a necessary standard of judgment.

      (act)

      "We don't have other standards to judge an applicant's English ability. So the CET has become a basic requirement."

      The Ministry of Education released the test CET draft reform at a press conference on Friday.

      The test committee will adopt a score system ranging from 290 to 710, abolishing the original bottom line of passing. A list of scores, including the total score and the score of every item, will be sent to candidates instead of a certificate.

      The listening comprehension section will be significantly increased, taking up 35 percent of the whole test.

      The oral and the written test will continue to be held separately. The oral test will be conducted through an interview.

      Experts welcome the move. They say the band 4 and 6 test has become a test to get a certificate rather than a test of actual English ability. Many students can pass the exam with high marks, but their English ability may be low.

      Some employers also say they don't only focus on the results of the test, but will also take other qualifications into consideration.

      (act)

      "The CET certificate is not the most important requirement for recruitment. It' only a reference for some posts. Anyway, a piece of paper cannot prove an applicant's English ability."

      The new college English test system will be carried out in major domestic universities on a trial basis this year and will be implemented nationwide in 2007.
