Running into college


What do you get when you make college entry troublesome and give extra credits to people good at sports? Cheating! Check out this report on BCC sport.

Students in China can earn extra credit on college entry exams with good sport results. In this case a time below 2:34 on the Marathon. During the Xiamen International marathon 30 people with times below this limit were disqualified either for

  • carrying two time-recording chips and thus recording not only their own time
  • using imposters
  • using transport on some parts of the course.
  • I think that might be the effect if you add anything else to sport than just plain competition or your own private battle with the distance and the clock.
