|Other Titles:||An Analysis of the Three Important Issues of the Civil Servant Examination System in Imperial China through Modern Viewpoints|
Department od Education, NTNU
The civil servant examination system in imperial China was started in the Sui Dynasty and abolished in the late Ching Dynasty in 1905. It was thought that the sys-tem would not influence scholars any longer. However, such kind of daily teaching and learning at schools of Taiwan and China is still conditioned and dominated by the examination system. The main purpose of this paper is to inquire the three important issues of the civil servant examination system in imperial China through modern viewpoints. The three issues are discussed one by one, including imbalanced supply and demand of schooling, the function of examination for promoting social mobility, and the possibility of abol-ishing social selection by open examinations. From the study, it is found that the emphasis of social equality, the scarcity of so-cial resources, and the imbalance of supply and demand in human resources still exist in Taiwan and China. Therefore, it is considered that such kind of open examination system similar to the civil servant examination will still be existent in Chinese society.
