Chapter 23 – Another examination! (Part 1)
Beijing University paid close attention to efficiency, and the all of the freshmen’s registration only took a single day. The second day was officially started early in the morning to carry out the necessary to opening ceremony where the school leaders will hold all kinds of speech to welcome and motivate the students.
However, Lin Mumu didn’t expect that after her rebirth, everything would be different from what she remembered.
The school leader didn’t make any sermon or sensible speech but straightforwardly threw out a huge bomb:
“This year, we, Beijing University, will select the liberal arts, the science, and the engineering departments to participate in a two-day preparatory class review before the ‘Beginning of term examination’.
The science class will pas its examination the day after tomorrow, and the liberal arts will hold theirs just after.
When the time comes, we will class everyone according to their achievements in the organization and arrange them into the suitable majors (main field of study).
The best choices would be if you could join the liberal arts, science, or engineering departments.
Of course, we, in Beijing University, do not collect trash. If students can’t even be tested on the basic knowledge, the school will unhesitatingly dismiss them. ”
After the shocking announcement, the school anthem was played, but nobody actually listened to it.[email protected]@@@[email protected]@@@@=======
That was too exaggerated!
The college entrance examination was already a difficult hurdle the students had to overcome in order to enroll into the higher educational system in China. After playing for the whole summer vacation, they immediately had to take another exam?
Test, test, test, is it the teachers’ sutras? (TN: a sutra or religious chanting, something you repeat piteously and full of belief in Buddhism.)
Anguishing the students must be their favorite pastime!
In the first place, to get admitted into the top Beijing University, they naturally had real knowledge, so they were confident in taking the test and passing it without any problem.
But the temptation of freely choosing one’s own major after a full year of preparatory classes for the liberal arts, the science and the engineering departments was simply too big.
At the end of the college entrance examination, they were still na?ve and ignorant about the future. They also couldn’t tell their own likes and dislikes clearly, even so what they wanted to do in the future, so most students actually had their parents help them to make choices.
If one takes part in the preparatory class, the studying time will still be four years, but the student will have the opportunity to reconsider his previous choice and decide his fate. For the sake of winning a place in this preparatory class, most were willing to study until they dropped.

Of course, Lin Mumu was an exception.
In the first place, she got admitted into university through a connection thanks to her master and didn’t even take the college entrance examination, therefore, she wasn’t the least bit scared of being dismissed.
“I’m definitely not going for the preparatory class. I’m indeed the religious studies’ firm supporter.” The school leader was still speaking above the platform but Chen Fangya had already pulled Lin Mumu to mutter:
“Oh, by the way, Lin Mumu, the thing you told me yesterday couldn’t be true, could it?”
“Of course it’s true.” Lin Mumu had an inexplicable premonition, she was about 80% sure that in this time’s matter, someone was precisely targeting her.
Of course, there was also a preparatory class in her past life, but the candidates had been selected directly according to their college entrance examination results, and there was no re-examination for the whole school.
Afterall, there were really few students in Beijing University who could walk in through the back door. Lin Mumu was precisely one such person, and the one targeting her must also know that she had never been to school before.
(TN: walk in through the back door means use shortcuts and connections to get a position, a job or generally to get anything done with an advantage.)
Lin Mumu personally felt that she handled yesterday’s forum incident pretty beautifully, but it seemed like the culprit behind the scenes wasn’t satisfied as he decided to make another move. Of course, she also guessed who that person may be.
Afraid that in the whole Beijing, there were very few people who could make the upright Lin Jing and the principal to change their educational tactics.
It was said that Lin Jing and the principal of Beijing University were the students brought up under Professor Luo, and Professor Luo was also Yun Ting’s grandmother.
Lin Mumu was scheming and plotting in her mind, but her face didn’t betray a single emotion.
“Xiao Daogu, later, I’ll tutor you with Yuanyuan to make up for anything you don’t know.”
“En.” (TN: you must know this already, but this is a groan/sound of acknowledgment, like ‘Mhm’ or a quite ‘alright’.)
“I brought many high school textbooks, I can lend them to you later as well.”
“Hey! Why aren’t you nervous?”
“Is being nervous any useful?”
Hearing Lin Mumu’s reply, Chen Fangya was at her wit’s end.
Because of the stress of the upcoming examination, the class gathering in the afternoon was cancelled, and everyone immersed themselves into a nervous state of intense reviews and preparations.
Perhaps because of Lin Mumu’s situation, Chen Fangya, Liu Yuanyuan and An Xiaoqin from the same dormitory all brought out their high school textbooks to review together with to Lin Mumu.
