China’s delayed university entrance exams begin

Pupils at schools throughout China have had a bit more time to prepare for the 2020 gaokao, the all-important National Higher Education Entrance Examination that universities use for enrolment decisions. The test period, which has been extended from two to four days in many areas, is taking place July 7-10, 2020, after being postponed for a month because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Special measures are in place to prevent coronavirus infections among the estimated 10.71 million high school graduates who will take the tests this year. Beijing’s Zhongguancun High School serves as the biggest examination facility among 132 institutions hosting tests in the capital this year.
