The grading of National College Entrance Exams is coming to an end. But as students and parents wait for the final results, the fairness of the scoring process is coming under scrutiny.

16 parent and student representatives were invited to observe the process, at one of the two grading centers in Guangxi.

The site is strictly guarded, with specially-made ID cards allowing access.

Zhao Yu from Entrance Exam Scoring Committee, said, "The whole site is monitored every day by cameras. Video footage is preserved for 30 days."

The site has more than 200 closed circuit monitors. Every grading room is equipped with at least two video cameras.

All the answer sheets are first scanned into a computer. The teachers then score the tests.

As the scanning machine automatically filters out red writing, only red pens are allowed into the marking room. This cuts down the chances papers being altered.

A student of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, said, "It can ward off cheating. This is my first time in the grading center. It's very quiet and calm here."

The 16 representative witnessed teachers scoring an exam paper. Every teacher only scores one to two examination questions. The rest of the paper cannot be seen.

A student of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, said, "I always felt the grading process was mysterious. But now I feel assured. I can see lots of work is done with this advanced equipment, to protect fairness."

The final results affect the future of nearly every student. An accurate grading process is key to ensuring the fairness of the whole examination system, and determining the brightest talents.
