And how you felt about it
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 a detailed analysis 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 specific major we wanted to study before we were officially matriculated into the university.
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 an exam. This article is from Laokaoya website. They let us take it home and have a discussion 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 education authority and was recommended by our school.
I didn’t find anything wrong with it until one day when I flipped it over and saw a page that recommended senior high school graduates to apply for a major of the first-tier university with only third-tier Gaokao scores, which was kind of weird for me as I knew that Gaokao was the fairest exam in China even in the world. How could it be possible to get into this prestigious university without 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 similar 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 booklet could be more strict in selecting the advertisers to be shown on this important booklet.
