Editor's note: Every year millions of young Chinese high school graduates go through tremendous stress and pressure as they "sit the Gaokao" that is the National College Entrance Exam where the result have long lasting effects on their lives.China Daily website invites some students who have gaokao experience to share with us how gaokao has shaped their life.

It might seem cruel and unreasonable at the beginning - you take a test for each subject three days in a roll and the result of the test kind of "determines" a big chunk of your life destination, for a 18 years old teenager.

However, I think Gaokao is so far the best way to help young people pursue their dreams or change their lives in China.

High school students lead in heated tests and studies to prepare for the first biggest test in their life, the college entrance examinations, as shown in A Little Reunion , a hit TV series. [Photo provided to China Daily]
