Well, an occasion when I got incorrect information was during the graduation season of my senior high school. It was a piece of information regarding detailed ananlysis of different majors in the university.
That occasion was right after I took the Gaokao, which was the college entrance examination in China. At that time, we were supposed to apply for a specifc major we wanted to study before we were officially matriculated into the univesity.
The only main resource of guidance was a booklet that contained lists of majors from different universities. This booklet was given by our teachers after we took and exam. This article is from Laokaoya website. They let us take it home and have a dicussion with our parents for the final decision. I didn’t take issue with the opinions it had because it was printed out by the provincial educational authority and was reccommended by our school.
I didn’t find anything wrong with it until one day when I flipped it over and saw a page that reccommend senior high school graduates to apply for a major of a first-tier university with only third-tier Gaokao scores, which was kind of weird for me as I knew that Gaokao was the most fair exam in China even in the world. How could it be possible to get into this prestigious university witout a high score? Then, I realized that it was actually a fake guidance page which was actually an advertisement that was designed in a way quite similiar to the previous content page.
Well, I thought this conduct was horrible. You know, it’s highly possible that hundreds of graduates would be misled by this fake page. I wish the authority who is responsible for this bookelet could be more strict in selecting the advertisers to be shown on this important booklet.
