Wide Usage of Educational Qualification in China
From: CHSI

China is implementing dual-credential system of educational qualification and degree. There might be some misunderstandings to China's qualification in foreign countries since they normally only have the degree. In fact, the qualification plays a basic and decisive role in China so that its functions cannot be replaced.

According to the Higher Education Law of the People’s Republic of China, Qualification Education is the basic system of China Higher Education, which is divided into junior college education, undergraduate education, and graduate education. Higher education institutions award corresponding qualification certificates according to students’ schooling length and academic record; the educational qualification is an important selection tool in China’s human resources management system and an important proof in admission exams, Civil Servant Exam, practicing certificate tests, and overseas study applications. 

In China, it is required to have relative educational qualification for junior college and undergraduate level students to attend various national examinations; but degree is not requested.
