Chinese Students get IV Drips While Studying for College Exams
Yes we all know that going to school can be very exhausting…But only in China would a school allow for their students to be hooked up to intravenous drips (IV) while studying for a national entrance examination.
According to chinasmack.com, in order to avoid holding students up from their studies in China’s annual Gaokao national college entrance examinations, the school arranged for the students to receive amino acid injections in the classroom.
Xiaogan No. 1 Middle School says the students are injecting amino acids to replace energy.
However, there is a method to their madness – sort of – the sum of the subject marks received by students determines if they can be accepted by their dream schools and if they can go to college at all, regardless of their previous academic performances in high school, the College Entrance Examination is deemed a rite of passage and a life-and-death turning point.
Well I guess Chinese people are not machines after all!
