Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Various ways to pray for gaokao good luck

Starting today, nearly 10 million students are taking the national university entrance examination, gaokao, across China. The three-day examination is taken mainly by the third or final year of high school students whose scores are used for university admission criteria. If a student scores higher than the requirements of the university he or she applied for, they can be enrolled. If not, they will be passed on to another nominated school to see if the score meets their requirements. If the score does not meet the requirement of any of the universities the examinee applied for, he or she has to wait for the next year’s exam. It is an ultra-high-stake exam on which the student’s future depends. The good news is that one can challenge as many times as they want as there is no official age limit to take the exam.

So, when everybody is studying die-hard, praying for good luck is the last thing exam takers, and their parents can do. Indeed, they pray to anyone or anything, from English mathematician and physicist Isaac Newton, Chinese philosopher Confucius, or even a replica statue of The Thinker, a legendary turtle in mythology.

Enjoy seeing the photos of desperate students and their parents praying for good luck.
