BEIJING - China's top leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) appealed to reform the country's education examination and enrollment system on Friday.

During the meeting presided by Chinese President and CPC General Secretary Xi Jinping, the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee called for a raise in admission rates for students from central and western parts of the country, as well as a push to enroll more students from rural areas.

It also called for improved enrollment measures for secondary and primary schools to address parents' difficulties in choosing better schools.

The reform should be aimed at building comprehensive evaluation measures and diverse admissions, the CPC central committee said.

The examination and enrollment system should be built as an equitable and strictly-supervised one.

They also urged officials to reform examination forms and contents, and improve enrollment measures.

The meeting came after the fourth meeting of the newly established Leading Group for Overall Reform earlier this month.

The group, led by Xi, reviewed the reforms prior to their approval Friday.

Those reform plans are part of a bigger plan laid out at the third plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee in November last year.
