    Dear friends and colleagues,
    I hope that my message find you well.
    In our institution, we are beginning a discussion on whether the Chinese National Exam Gaokao English scores be accepted as an indicator of language proficiency and if so, what cut off scores should be used. If your institution is accepting Gaokao scores, I would greatly appreciate your feedback on what scores are accepted for undergraduate and graduate studies along with other tests (IELTS, TOEFL etc.) & scores that your institution accepts.
    Thank you in advance for your time and happy holidays.
