Overall, students’ avoidance of science elective courses intensified. 36.8 36.4 36.5
Although Science II course is a career elective course, it is included as an optional subject for the CSAT, so the connection between the curriculum and the CSAT is poor. 31.6 27.3 28.6
The current dual evaluation system, general electives with relative grading and career electives with absolute grading system, is not appropriate. 31.6 15.9 20.6

Due to insufficient number of elective subjects, students’ choice is not practically guaranteed. 0.0 13.6 9.5
