China's Education Ministry wants strong discipline to be enforced as universities recruit students through proprietory testing, rather than national college entrance exams.
In a Friday circular, the ministry ordered strict examination of candidates' credentials and asked admission staff to video interviews and publish students' scores in a timely manner.
Universities authorized to use the admission program should set up a team of university leaders and discipline staff, and decisions regarding admission should be made collectively, according to the circular.
The move came after a number of university officials were placed under investigation for involvement in corruption.
In November, Cai Rongsheng, head of the admissions office of Beijing-based Renmin University of China was allegedly involved in corrupt admissions.
