During the meeting, the College Counseling Office and the Academic Affairs Office worked together to clarify the current learning situation of students and the direction of their further study for parents. In terms of guidance for further education,Director Wang of College Counseling Office gave the timeline of each grade. She appealed to students to set their goals for further education as soon as possible. She encouraged them to have high standards and set strict requirements for themselves. Students need to have an efficient sense of time management. At the same time, Director Wang put forward: the process of hard work is as important as the result. In the final months of the application season,students must resist the pressure from all sides and do their best. It is suggested that parents, as the strong supporters of their children, encourage them to strive hard and at the same time, provide them with a warm and comfortable family environment.
