In China, the high school has big different than America, but college is kind of same. Base on my opinion, the major in China have divided into many parts, but the two main parts are literature and science. Literature is study about history, government, and economy. Science is study about math, chemistry, and physics. After attending the college, the student must pass the College English Test Band 4. If you’re not take or not pass this test, will have a hard time to find job.
The parents in China think that go to a college is the very important thing, sometimes even important than life. If their child can’t go to a good college, they will feel shame about their child. And some parents will tell their child which major should be taken, only because of that major is easy to find job or has a higher salary.
