About 120 secondary students are to get a wake-up call about the economic realities of life after school today at the first of three camps run by Citibank in co-operation with Tung Wah Group of Hospitals. The role-playing 'Smart Kid' camps will divide students into family groups with their earnings determined by how well they perform in an academic test. 'We want this to reflect real life, and that your performance in exams determines your social status,' a spokeswoman for the organisers said. 'If they do well in the test they will be rewarded with university education and a well-paid professional career.'
