Is it time for gaokao to go global?

The main problem with the gaokao is the sheer amount of subjects. In Britain, we begin to specialize. Instead of doing lots of topics we choose four or five that are suitable for our needs.

For example, if you want to go to university and study math, English, PE, Ideology, Art are four subjects you could scrap straight away and save them a lot of time. Why in the name of hell would a mathematician need to draw with a pencil? It wastes the students’ time and this I believe is the main issue.

Likewise, if you want to study art, I don't think English and Math are necessary, neither is PE, Ideology, History, Geography or Physics. The students time could be spent specializing but instead is wasted studying many pointless subjects that they will forget five minutes after the gaokao exam is over.
