Thought that was pretty interesting. Our tests here in the US are just like that English sample question about the simple right triangle and stuff. Look at the Chinese one though

That Chinese problem is actually for pre-entry students and that English one is for first year students.

Lmao, yeah you can tell, some cultures prioritize academic intelligence more than others, hence the stereotype of smart asians and the negative connotation for 'asian parents'. Just another one of those things that I have to live with every day of my life..
The difference is just ridiculously insane though, I can't solve that Chinese entrance question.

I think another part of it is that there are very few universities in China compared to the U.S. or the U.K., therefore it's harder to get in.

Well, that's definitely a valid point also, limited facilities for higher education means stricter requirements and in this case I guess they're weeding out the people with the lesser mental capacity, which I really shouldn't be saying since a simple entrance exam can't measure that.
