China Focus: First national regulation born to help disabled exam takers

China has issued a national regulation on facilitating the disabled to sit the college entrance exam, the country's most important, for the first time, according to an official statement on Friday.

The provisional regulation on assisting the disabled in college entrance exams has been jointly publicized by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the China Disabled Persons' Federation, marking the first national-level arrangement in this area.

According to the regulation, education authorities at all levels should provide conveniences to disabled exam takers, including exam papers in Braille, or in big characters, longer time allowances, and offering assistance in exam venues, such as sign language translators.

Specifically, the visually impaired will be allowed to take exams with Braille pens and writing boards, Braille typewriters, magnifying glasses, among other tools.
