More Shanghai students enroll in Cambridge, Oxford

SEVENTEEN high school graduates in Shanghai have received admission offers from Cambridge and Oxford, the two world-famous universities, this year, local schools announced today.

The Cambridge International Center of Shanghai Normal University, the largest A-level course provider in Shanghai, said 17 out of the center's 240 graduates have been enrolled by Cambridge and Oxford this year.

The figure has more than tripled since the center was founded in 2006 and is two students more than last year.

General Certificate of Education Advanced Level, or A-level for short, is accepted as academic qualification and enrollment gauge by universities around the world, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada and Australia.

"A growing number of education training institutions in Shanghai began to offer A-level and other internationally-recognized curriculums in recent years to meet Chinese parents' demand for overseas education for their children," said Zhang Zhengzhi, the Cambridge center director.

Tuition of a full-time course offered in Shanghai ranges from 80,000 yuan (US$11,764) to 90,000 yuan annually.
