b) Completion rate for primary and secondary education

Under the policy of 9-year free and universal basic education, the completion rate for primary education and junior secondary education are close to 100%. Since the 2011/12 school year, the new senior secondary academic structure has been fully implemented and all students are offered subsidized school places to complete senior secondary education.

The ratio in the above table refers to the “Gross Enrolment Ratio” which is defined as “Total enrolment in a specific level of education, regardless of age, expressed as a percentage of the eligible official school-age population corresponding to the same level of education in a given school year” by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). According to this definition, the gross enrolment ratio in a given school year may be greater or less than 100%.

The 2016 Population By-census provides a benchmark for revising the population figures compiled since the 2011 Population Census. Gross Enrolment Ratio has been compiled using the revised population figures.
