China Daily reports that cities across China have banned traffic and construction noise this week to create a conducive testing environment for more than 9.57 million high school students sitting for their college entrance exams, starting Monday.
The high schoolers will compete for only 6.57 million slots at China’s universities and colleges.
If an emergency arises, traffic police are prepared to transport students to their exams. Local police have also stepped up their inspection of identity cards after the education ministry called for a crackdown on impostors attempting to take the exam.
