49,119 Sign up AST for College, All Time Low|指考4.9萬人報考創新低 重考人數7年新高

July 1 was the first day of the Advanced Subjects Test, one of Taiwan's main university entrance examinations. This year, a total of 49,119 people signed up, which is again a record low. However, the number of repeat test takers turns out to be the highest in seven years. Topics such as Dengue Fever, GPS tracker and optical tweezers are all included in this years physics exam.

Parents rallied outside the examination halls and cheer on their offspring. Today was the first day of the Advanced Subjects Test. First day's test subjects include physics, chemistry, and biology. Some students were not happy with their scores in the GSAT, another college entrance exam earlier this year, that's why they're taking this test. Those from the affiliated senior high school of National Taiwan Normal University collectively dress in their school's white T-Shirts to show their determination.

Our slogan shows that we're ready to take on the battle that is the Advanced Subjects Test.

As the bell rings, the students enter the classrooms and await for exam booklets. The students who came to the exam location late run their way into the classrooms. Some students said that they've never seen the questions from this year's exams, others said that this year exam was easier than the mock tests.

Multiple choice question no. 20 was pretty hard, I think. It's a question on kinetics and acceleration. I don't think I've tackled questions like this before.

The really hard questions are the ones on the acceleration of a solar sail in space. I think the test (as a whole) is not that hard, and it can tell their abilities.

The physics test this year includes questions related to Dengue fever, the GPS function of mobile phones and optical tweezers, and invention that won the Nobel Prize last year. The questions in this year's test are more closely related to real-life issues. Core competency questions account for 30 percent of the total exam questions, whereas the traditional questions, such as those that require complex calculations, are less in number than in past years' tests.

Among the non-multiple-choice questions, there are more questions that require diagram drawing, they account for 10 points. There are less questions on calculation. This is the first time in ten years (that we've seen so many questions on diagram drawing).

A total of 49,119 people signed up for this year's exam, the number once again was an all-time low. On the other hand, there are 8,296 repeat test-takers, the most in seven years. A repeat test taker said that he studied medicine in university, but later on, found out that he preferred informational engineering and electrical engineering. That's why he decided to start over.

北市各高中家長舉起旗幟,站在考場門口,替學生加油打氣。大學指考第一天,考物理、化學、生物,有學生不滿意先前學測的成績、結果,選擇報名七月指考再戰,而師大附中學生則穿上學校發放的白色T-shirt,取「以戰止戰」的諧音--以戰「指」戰前來應試!

師大附中考生表示:「一個諧音,以戰止戰,全校都有發。」

鈴聲響起,學生進入教室等待試題發放,考場外則有學生幾乎要遲到,一下車就拔腿狂奔。第一節物理科考完後,有考生反映,有的題型在考古題中沒見過,也有人認為,比模擬考容易作答。

應屆考生表示:「單選第20題我覺得滿難,就是運動學的,然後他加速度會變,我就覺得好像沒有寫過這種題目。」

重考生表示:「特別難的喔?我覺得算太陽帆太空船加速度吧!我覺得(整體)不會算難啦!就是算有鑑別度。」

在大考中心舉行記者會的高中教師評析,物理科有登革熱、GPS手機定位和去年諾貝爾獎得主的研究題材「光學鑷子」入題,今年考題生活化,首次將「素養」試題比重提升到快三成,傳統或繁瑣的計算考題明顯減少。

試務召集人 沈青嵩表示:「在非選擇題部分,降低計算比重,增加作圖題型,占分高達十分,是近年來指考題型中前所未見。」

今年指考報名人數共有4萬9119人報考,再創歷年新低,但重考生為主的個別報名人數8296人,創七年來新高,有重考生低調表示,大學念的是醫學系,但發現自己比較嚮往資工、電機科系,因此捲土重來,選擇有興趣的領域發展還是比較重要。
