Testing time for Shanghai's students

ABOUT 66,000 high school students headed to more than 100 test centers across the city today for the annual college entrance exam.

Despite the morning rush hour and World Expo traffic this year, students reached their test centers and began their test papers on time.

"Traffic is good this morning," said father Huang Wenjie who took his daughter by motorbike to Dongchang High School near Pudong's Lujiazui.

Huang's daughter lives and studies near the Sanlin Expo site but was assigned to test centers outside the area with her schoolmates this year to have a better exam environment.

"We started out a little earlier today considering it's a longer distance," Huang said. He had visited the site beforehand to calculate the time needed.

More than 10 test centers in four districts were cancelled or relocated to avoid congestion in the area close to the Expo.

More than 3,200 traffic police were dispatched onto roads to guide the traffic. Drivers were warned not to sound horns near the test centers, especially tomorrow when the English listening test is launched, and they plan to impose fines on violators.

Though many local families have received their free Expo tickets, they are postponing their visits until after the three-day exam.

"I'm planning to visit the Expo with my parents after the test," said student Shelly Li.
