take tests at home
Up to 50,000 students in Beijing took a dry run (适应性测试) for the national college entrance exam (高考) on March 3. When the 150-minute test began, most students had a parent as their supervisor (监督者). After the exam, the parents took photos of the answer sheets (答题卡) or scanned (扫描) them. Subjects such as Chinese, mathematics and English were included in the exam, as well as three optional (选修的) subjects.
