This paper conducted a questionnaire survey to record the statistics and analyze the status quo of National Examination for Teacher Certificate among pre-service chemistry teachers in X Normal University. The results revealed a relatively low examination pass rate, insufficient knowledge depth among the pre-service teachers, and a highly uniform method of exam preparation. Moreover, the analysis also showed that the course completion was not in harmony with the tested content, the teaching content as well as methods require further revision, and the practical teaching training conducted was below par. Subsequently, regression analysis was conducted with respect to the level of attention put by the university teachers, the curriculum arrangement, the teaching content and methods, as well as practical teaching training, based on which result the targeted countermeasures were proposed. This study was aimed at guiding the pre-service chemistry teachers to actively face the national examination as well as improve their qualities as teachers-to-be.

Key words: Pre-service chemistry teachers, Teacher certificate, National examination, Status, Countermeasures
