“Moreover, I have already studied the international curriculum for a whole semester and prepared for the TOEFL language proficiency test. I don’t want to start all over again for the gaokao. It’s a whole different curriculum that requires another three years of tough preparation,” Nan said. “My mom supported my decision. She knew I didn’t handle the pressure from zhongkao well and she’s worried I won’t be able to survive the gaokao,” she added.
“My major was not decided when I applied for the school. I wish to explore where my passion is through various courses and activities,” Nan said. “Life there could be very different from home. Though it could take me a while before I get accustomed to it, I am still looking forward to experiencing some new culture.”
