According to the Ministry of Education, starting from January 10, inter-provincial transfers of students will be managed via a nationwide primary and secondary school student information management system. For transferring between schools, students only need to submit applications to their destination schools, and the other processes can all be conducted online.
This nationwide student information management system has already been set up, and the task of inputting students’ information is almost complete. Once students’ core information has been confirmed, the Ministry of Education will allocate official national student numbers to primary and secondary school students in China.
