Disabled teenb admitted by Tsinghua

    2017-July-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

WEI XIANG, a disabled student from Northwest China’s Gansu Province, has been officially accepted by the country’s prestigious Tsinghua University, reports thepaper.cn.

He will study as a math major in the university’s experimental classes for science disciplines.

The admission was confirmed on a post on the official Sina Weibo account of the provincial education authority in Gansu on Tuesday.

It said that Wei’s 648 points scored on the gaokao, China’s college entrance exam, is good enough to qualify for Tsinghua University, which plans to enroll 23 students for science and engineering from Gansu this year.

Wei, 19, suffers from a severe disability which requires full-time care by his mother.

Wei posted a letter on WeChat last month, requesting preferential help from Tsinghua.

The letter created a stir on the Internet after being reposted numerous times by WeChat users.

“I can’t look after myself because of my body’s condition,” said Wei. “I’m excited that I have the possibility to be admitted to Tsinghua University, but am concerned about my life there. I hope that the university can provide a dorm for me and my mother so that she can help me with my life.”

Qiu Yong, president of Tsinghua University, later said the university had learned of Wei’s situation, and would provide a free dorm for the student and his mother once his admission is confirmed.   (CRI)
