In Pictures: China’s grueling national college entrance exams ‘gaokao’ begins

Today, Chinese teens will sit for the grueling “gaokao”, the two-day national college entrance exams said to be one of the world’s toughest tests.

Competition is strife, hours are long and the stakes are very, very high.

To add to that, Quartz reported a robot called “AI-MATHS” will be joining the more than nine million students sitting for the gaokao this year.

Here’s how the national event is unfolding in pictures.

1. Chinese high school students release balloons at a sports field as they prepare for the gaokao in Zhengzhou.
