High schools are so good in Japan that a high school pass out there is considered as educated as a university graduate in Italy, itself a very important and cultured land. So, for those who would like pursue college education, competition is quite fierce. One exam will decide whether they get the marks required to attend their single college choice. If they fail to meet the grade, they will probably not go to university, but they will still be very employable in Japan’s high employment economy.
