Japan weighs letting undergrads use credits gained in high school

New plan allows students more flexibility and universities more choice

Japan is thinking about changing its university credit system to make it more flexible for high school applicants. 

TOKYO -- Japan's government is mulling a change of the university credit system to allow students to apply points attained during high school at any university toward their graduation tally, Nikkei has learned.

Under the proposal by the government's Council for the Implementation of Education Rebuilding, high schoolers who have taken supplementary classes at universities will be able to apply those credits to their tally at any university in the future.
