Chinese students do poorer on the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) than their US counterparts, said a report by DK Education.


The report shows Chinese students scored 1,213 on average, nearly 300 points lower than American students, who got 1,509. The SAT is a recognized college admissions test in the US that assesses students' knowledge of reading, writing and math. Chinese students dropped most of their points in the reading and writing sections.


The main reason, said the report, is Chinese students generally lack creative thinking, a key element affecting their scholastic aptitude.

Does any part of this test(s) involve the ability to take this test in a second language, which also uses perhaps different criteria to the method of discursive styles as used in the West and the East  ........  ?

In fact, I believe the SAT was designed to test the ability of native US students who had been tutored in a specific pedagogical environment ..........

It would indeed be interesting to see how Western students fared in a similar exam in say China ......

If there is such a thing .........

Chinese students should hehave better than US students in exams. China's education style is old. Maybe that's the main reason.

i consider this deed of local court is a discrimination for the  female doctor. i suggest charge the university. you will find that in china there aways are many of unfair equity,neither  people belong to mailland nor coming from abroad.so i appeal to all of us defend our rights of belonging to us.to be honest, if you are  out of china, i think that you will not see this case.ourgovernments aways said that people have rights of  equity ,and our regime is  pretty better than any  other countries.aactually,many respects concerned with our colse behalf are unfair and are not good for ourselves.

Have to agree with the notion that the SAT is in fact an American born and bred test......so of course, the American student would do better, hell they should also do better than other native English speaking students from the other native English speaking countries. It's geared towards them, they study for it for years prior to taking it, only have to look at some of the American High School movies, and all they go on about is their SAT score.
