Japan: „High school admission is typically based on highly competitive entrance examinations administered by the prefectural or municipal boards of education or directly through private high schools. The three years of junior high school are therefore a particularly important period during pupils’ lives as they determine whether a young person will be able to attend a prestigious upper-secondary school.“
