Chinese Are Influential in Academics Now

For those who are familiar with the extant Chinese educational system, we are among the generations that are so overwhelmed by the National College Entrance Examination (NCEE). Needless to say, those old days in senior high school are dark and boring and the final outcome may have a life long impact on our beliefs and lives.

The UK's Royal Society of Chemistry wanna test the mathematics skills of their undergraduates in a CHINESE way. Here is the detail. It recently has set a maths prize: the chance to win £500 (US$1000) for the correct answer to this problem, which is, as expeted, a standard university entrance exam question given to under college students in China.

Give it a go although you may feel uncomfortable.
