On June 5th, 148 senior high school students from Chongqing Wushan Dachang Middle School took a boat from Dachang Town to Wushan County to take the summer college entrance examination.

Wushan is located in the Three Gorges Reservoir area, with vertical and horizontal rivers and well-developed water transportation.

Although all townships and village groups in Wushan have access, in some townships, it is more time-saving and faster to travel by boat than by car.

Wang Shixin, principal of Dachang Middle School, told reporters that 148 students went to the exam by boat this time. They divided the candidates into groups, led by school leaders and teachers, and served the candidates by boat.

  It is understood that Dachang Middle School has decades of history of going to the exam by boat (including the middle school entrance examination and the college entrance examination). Every time they have to personally send the students to the county accommodation in advance, and then go to the county test center for reference. "Take the wind and waves to the exam" has become Dachang Town. The personal experience of tens of thousands of candidates.

However, the 2021 candidates in Dachang Town may be the last candidates to take the college entrance examination by boat.

With the opening of the local highway at the end of this year, it will be faster for students to travel to the exam by car in the future.
