Ministry delays introducing private English tests   

The introduction of private English tests for university entrance exams will be postponed, Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Minister Hagiuda Koichi announced at a news conference on Nov. 1.

The tests, held in lieu of the National Center Test for University Admissions currently administered by an independent agency, were to be adopted starting with the 2020 academic year, but will now be reviewed completely, including whether private English tests will be used. The ministry had planned to adopt seven private tests including Eiken and TOEFL. Hagiuda said the ministry would aim to adopt a new system in the 2024 academic year.

Hagiuda's announcement came on the heels of a remark he made on a television program on Oct. 24, in which he said, "People should choose to compete for university places in accordance with their standing," despite it being pointed out that the test-taking scheme created economic and regional disparities.

Hagiuda's comment had been criticized particularly by those preparing for upcoming entrance exams, and by high school staff and instructors.
