The entrance examination system in Japanese private university in the stage of elite higher education was based on 1) national curriculum that pursued completion of high general education at high school, 2) examinations imposing many subjects, and 3) low enrolment ratio with relative shortage of quota for students who accessed to universities. While the former two conditions were lost from the late-1970s to the beginning of 1990s, and the last condition was lost from 1992 on, the entrance examination system and the selection system for enrolment has deteriorated. This article gives a historical review of deteriorating process in the entrance examination system in Japanese private university.
