Today, 9.4 million Chinese high school students are sitting the country’s grueling two-day college entrance examination, also known as the Gaokao. It was the Chinese Literature exam for most of the places across the country this morning. The students are probably taking lunch or having a nap for a rest now. This year also marks the 40 years of anniversary of the Gaokao since it was resumed in 1977.
