Describe a difficult challenge you met
You should say:
What it was
When you met it
Where you met it
And explain why you think it is a challenge
A difficult challenge I met was preparing the GAOKAO, which was the college entrance examination in China.
This exam has been considered the biggest and most essential exam for most senior high students in mainland China. It’s also regarded as the fairest way of providing higher education opportunities to students. My challenge was to get ready for the exam and score high as much as possible because the better score I got the higher-ranked university I will be matriculated.
I met this challenge since I started the first day of my senior high school, and it’s getting tougher when I was in the final year. You know, it’s basically an examination of memorization. This article is from Laokaoya website. We were supposed to memorize a lot of knowledge from the subjects including English, Chinese, Geography, Politics, and History. My biggest headache was Geography, which was considered as a combination of arts and sciences, which consumed me a lot of time and I still couldn’t comprehend all the knowledge bits from the textbooks.
Well, the reason why I think it’s a challenge for me was that the Gaokao preparation was intensive, which took time and effort to get fully prepared. Obviously, I always felt the time was never enough for me. Another reason why it’s challenging was that, in this exam, I was not competing against myself only, I was actually fighting for an offer against tens of thousands of candidates in our area, which was extremely stressful for me.
