Taking a test

Tests (考试) are a big part of school life in China.

Although Mandarin Chinese passage below says that coffee (咖啡) is a good way to wake up for exams; you probably shouldn’t do it.





I slept very late last night because I will take an exam in the morning but I hadn’t revised yet so I stay up late studying.

Before I went to the exam in the morning, I felt very tired and drank a cup of coffee.

When the exam started, I didn’t feel tired. I finished the test paper very quickly and went home to sleep.
