Aboriginal culture and language test results out

National Taiwan Normal University yesterday unveiled the result of
this year's Aboriginal culture and language proficiency examination,
with test-takers who lived in Aboriginal communities outshining other

A total of 6,950 Aboriginal students registered for the examination,
but only 5,308 participated in the accreditation examination.

Up to 61.8 percent of the examinees passed the test, with those who
lived with their grandparents or lived in an Aboriginal community
performing better than those who lived in a non-Aboriginal community,
Chen Hsueh-chih (???), associate dean of the university's School of
Continuing Education, told a press conference.
