Video: Students Around the World Relive Entrance Exams

Whether it’s the American SAT, the Chinese gaokao, or the Jordanian tawjehe, university entrance exams are a rite of passage for high school students around the world. In this WIDE ANGLE web exclusive, five students and recent graduates share their experiences with these stressful, sometimes life-altering tests. Special thanks to Peter, Janaz, Daniel, Alex and Shauna — these videos were shot by the students themselves, some with cell phones or digital cameras. Feel free to add your own story in the comments section!
