chinaSMACK: Gaokao University Entrance Exam Stress Relief in China
Papers and books rained like confetti on Thursday as Chinese high school seniors preparing for the high-pressure university entrance exam celebrated their last day of school. chinaSMACK has pictures and a video:
It is almost time for the “gaokao” [university entrance exam] and yesterday morning and the third years [final year of high school in China] at our school had a pledge ceremony. Afterward, the third year students began to throw their exam papers, their books. At first people tore them into pieces, later they were throwing entire sheets and sheets, and even later they were throwing bundles and bundles. It was spectacular. It was a release from the stress of the third year.
I am just a first year. If our our school’s seniors can get a better score, then they would have done so many exam papers justice.
