    I lived in China. I tutored the children of CCP officials. They told me to my face of how they were going to get into Uni, since I knew their grades and poor scores across many subjects. They told me explicitly of the fake ID, have someone else sit for the exam, 'clever trick' of getting accepted.

    Your propaganda only works on someone who did not live in China and did not speak Chinese.

    I am repeating what was told to me by these students who had CCP parents.

    Your denial changes nothing.

    More lies.

    The semester end was moved in the 1990s to coincide with that range of dates, to specifically keep them busy during that time.

    It was not around that time before then.

    So some obnoxious teenagers fed you some lines of BS, and you're here waving it around like God's own truth? Anything to make Chinese look bad, right?


    We also used to go to school on Saturdays. Times changed, school days and semesters got shortened.

    Ever hear of Occam's Razor?

    On the one hand, we can explain Gaokao getting moved to June because semesters shortened as part of the general trend of reduced school days.

    On the other hand, for your theory to be true, we have to assume:

    1- That high school students cares about June 4th
    2- Having the Gaokao in July isn't keeping high school students sufficiently busy in June -- students in fact spend the entire year preparing for the Gaokao
    3- Not keeping high school students busying in June would lead to some kind of social upheaval

    Stop feeding false facts to justify your cause. Prior to 2003, the exam was held from July 7th to 9th. After 2003, the exams were held from June 7th to 9th. So 14 years after the incident, CCP suddenly had an epiphany that these high-school'ers are a real problem for the regime. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure that CCP won't be in power right now if reacts this slowly to such a "critical" issue to its rule.

    Also, it was mostly the college students who went to the Square and protested. I would say > 95% of the protesters were college students. That's why the military style discipline training was immediately implemented after the protest in colleges. Peking university, where most of the protesters came from, was told to hold a year-long discipline training.

    What did it have anything to do with high school kids?

    You do realize I was referring to their admitted tendency to cheat on any exam, TOEFL, SAT, ChuKao or GaoKao, right?

    Unfortunately you are basically saying "Chinese are all cheaters lololol" under the guise of personal anecdote and assumption of acceptance of your claims without any meaningful statistics or evidence, so those are the sorts of generalisations this forum doesn't really tolerate, no matter which ethnic group is being targeted in this case.

    If you want to talk about cheating in general without a number, then that might be toeing the line. If you then try to say things like cheating is rampant and then accuse people here of being shills, all while consistently exhibiting your own blatant racism, well then yeah, you should expect your posts to be deleted.

    There are other forums which are both more pro China and more anti China which are less strictly moderated, and you can go there instead if you want to write what you've been writing here.
