This paper looks at the current situation of exam-oriented education in China, then discusses its different root aspects and the influences such an educational model has on Chinese society. Exam-oriented education has many flaws, which has been widely recognized by the public and educational professionals, however, many restraints from society ensured its continuation. This paper analyzes a number of scholarships on exam-oriented education as well as its quality-oriented counterpart, concludes its negative impacts on students and society, then emphasizes oral English education to provide an insight into quality-oriented education and its positive impact on the development of students’ overall English abilities. After carefully comparing the benefits between exam-oriented education and quality-oriented education, the writers believe that quality-oriented education is ultimately the better educational model for enhancing Chinese students’ second language capacity. Although reformation of the current exam-oriented educational model will require a huge amount of effort, the impact on the educational system and society will be tremendous. Promising perspectives on how China’s exam-oriented education could be improved to suit the society’s qualitative needs provide an insight of a hopeful future for the Chinese academia.
