Japan’s college entrance examination kicked off on the 16th, and more than 530,000 candidates across the country applied for the examination.
Under the background of the aggravation of the COVID-19 epidemic, all test sites have taken strict epidemic prevention measures.
All candidates must wear masks and sit down at intervals of one meter.
Affected by the epidemic, some candidates are unable to take the exam.
According to the data of the Japan University Entrance Examination Center, more than 535,000 candidates have taken the two-day “university entrance examination” this year.
According to Japan’s Asahi Shimbun, according to the latest regulations, candidates who are identified as close contacts with the novel coronavirus must be tested negative before taking the examination.
However, due to the rapid increase in the number of infected people in Japan recently, many candidates cannot be ranked for nucleic acid testing and face the embarrassing situation of not being able to take the exam.
However, the organizer of the examination said that candidates who missed the examination can take two make-up examinations at the end of January or in mid-February.
There are 681 test sites in this college entrance examination.
In order to prevent the spread of the virus, each test site requires candidates to wear masks, sit down at intervals of one meter, and disinfect their hands when entering and leaving the examination room; the examination room is ventilated for at least 10 minutes after each examination.
