Born during SARS, taking Gaokao in Covid-19
Dumbledore once said, “It is not our abilities that decide who we truly are, it is our choices.”No one wants to determine his life based on just one exam. Shanghai Macduffie Bilingual School gives you more choices to help you realize your dream in the future.
According to the admission rate of all provinces in 2019, more than 50 percent of candidates will not be able to get a bachelor's degree, and 21 percent will not be able to get a university degree. With the end of Gaokao, or the college entrance examination, everything settles. Some people are happy and some are worried. Some have stepped into the renowned universities while some have nowhere to go.
“Gaokao is the only way out”.This saying has been imprinted on the mind of every Chinese for decades. With the development of the economy and technology, we gradually see that “all roads lead to Rome”. Gaokao is no longer the single bridge, and we can have more life choices.
