A total of 1.08 million Chinese college students have signed up for the army as of late August this year, up 5.58 percent year on year, according to an educational official on Wednesday.

The figure showed that more college students would like to devote themselves to national defense and serve the country, said Xu Mei, spokesperson for the Ministry of Education.

The ministry will help with physical and political examinations to recruit more soldiers from colleges, Xu said.

In July this year, the military asked to raise the proportion of college student recruits.
