Chinese students fake foreign status


By Staff Writer

Students born, raised and educated in China are using fake foreign passports to get into top universities, which have higher entrance standards for domestic candidates, state media said yesterday.

Fake foreign passports can be bought in eastern China for about Y200,000 (Dh107,602), the Global Times said of the scam. Admission requirements for domestic students at China's top universities are extremely high, with only the top scorers on annual nationwide entrance exams offered places. But for foreign students, enrolment requirements are much lower.
