Parents fight too! The business opportunities of volunteering for the college entrance exam are amazing | College Entrance Exam | Volunteer Reporting |

[Llais Gobaith, Mehefin 8, 2023](comprehensive report by our reporter Li Hui) After the college entrance exam, filling volunteers has become a technical job, and it has also spawned a new industry: education consultants. Experts believe that the root cause of involution is not the gaokao, but the growing gap between the rich and the poor in China and fear and anxiety about social inequality in China.

On June 7, 2023, the college entrance exam begins. After several years of hard work, tens of millions of students have worked hard to achieve this hurdle. However, after the college entrance exam, students and their parents face another problem: filling their volunteers.

According to a survey carried out by the media Lu “Economy 21st Century”, paying to fill out voluntary reports has become a hot business, and many businesses use the idea of ​​”a good test is worse than a good report” as a publicity gimmick , attracting many students and parents.

According to the report, such consulting fees usually range from 2,000 yuan to 20,000 yuan. With such a high fee, are the reference answers for voluntary submissions correct? The answer is: not necessarily.

The report drew attention to the fact that the practitioners of these consulting agencies are also good and bad, and that some of them come in temporarily to make a fortune. Some members of staff cannot even explain the majors offered by the university. “I asked about the difference between electronic science and technology, electronic information science and technology, and electronic information engineering. He said these three majors are similar.” And this company The agency charges as high as 10,800 yuan.

The report believes that the main reason for this situation is that the main aim of these institutions is to improve the access rate, rather than to ensure that all points are not wasted. This has also led to a lot of “high score low score takes” phenomenon.

However, it can be seen from the above phenomena that the academic competition of Chinese teenagers is getting bigger and bigger, and the number of applicants for the college entrance examination of about 13 million this year has also set a new historical record. It can be predicted that when they graduate, they have to have the experience of “crossing a single plank bridge” to find a job.

As for the reason for this situation, Xiang Biao, director of the Institute of Anthropology at the Max Planck Institute in Germany, told DW that, intuitively speaking, this is linked to the large-scale expansion of enrollments from Chinese universities since 1999. going to college has become easier, but the competition has become tougher.

Everyone wants to get into a good school so they can find a good job in the future. Some college students who enter “high school” prepare for the postgraduate entrance exam very early, because they feel that otherwise there will be no good job opportunities.

Xiang Biao said that although there are many reasons for young people’s involvement, the root cause is the widening gap between the rich and the poor after the reform and opening up of the Chinese Communist Party, as well as the fear and anxiety about the inequality in Chinese society.

Parents realize the importance of seizing high-quality work opportunities and having a high social status, and they invest in their children’s future at all costs. This unequal environment makes everyone hope to be admitted to a good university and live the life of an urban white collar worker. This kind of homogenous social consciousness leads most people to be dissatisfied with their current life, and to pursue becoming “higher”, without thinking about the reasons behind it and the methods to change their surrounding environment.

A few days ago, data released by the Bureau of Statistics of the Communist Party of China showed that the youth unemployment rate in China reached 20.4%, which is the highest value ever recorded. Xiang Biao believes that the youth unemployment rate is so high that there are no opportunities for involution. What they do with their lives will be a new question.
