The fall in the number of students taking the gaokao will force some colleges and universities to find novel recruitment methods if they want to enroll enough students, education experts have warned.
Until very recently, the children of migrant workers had no right to sit the "gaokao," China'a annual college entrance exam, in their adopted cities, even if they had studied there for most of their academic life.
After passing through multiple checkpoints, including facial recognition, fingerprint verification and a metal detector, students will finally be granted access, not to a bank vault, but to a radio-shielded room where they will take the national college entrance exam.
Gaokao is no ordinary test in China. From praying parents accidentally burning down trees, to forking out a 100,000 yuan to prepare for the career-defining exam, the most important time in a Chinese student's schooling is eventful, to say the least.
