The National College Entrance Examination or Gao Kao, viewed as a life-and-death turning point in the lives of students, senior high school, as it determines if they will be accepted through into their dream school and if they can go to college at all, regardless of their previous academic performances in high school. The test includes three compulsory subjects (Mathematics, Chinese and English), with some optional, and take place on the 7th, 8th and 9 June This is just one of the Chinese version of the SAT, only the students apparently take it way more seriously there. 

Actually I agree with the study is important as a poor student, but doing it to the point where really needed amino acids your body to cope with exhaustion seems a bit extreme.
