96,000 Students in Sichuan Quake Zones Sit for Top Exam
    2008-07-03 14:55:39     CRIENGLISH.com

During the next three days, 96,000 high-school students in the quake-hit zones in Sichuan will take the annual national college entrance examination, almost a month after the rest of the country.

These students have gone through a traumatic experience, but are determined to succeed in life.

Meanwhile, a total of 4,721 students will take the exam in Deyang city, half of whom are from nearby counties.

Local education authorities said 70 percent of the schools in the Deyang region are now considered too dangerous to enter.

Since June 10, construction workers from Tianjin had built a total of 653 prefabricated temporary classrooms where the examination will be held. Safety shelters have also been built in case of a severe aftershock.
