Guokao, or China's national civil service exam, takes place on Sunday. It is China's national level exam to enroll government employees. It attracts a large number of candidates each year because government jobs, dubbed "iron rice bowls", mean guaranteed job security, steady income and benefits.

If you think your college exam was tough, then brace yourself for this. If you think your high school exam was nerve-wracking, then this would make you sweat from every part of your body.

It's China's national civil service exam, or guokao.

There are 135 multiple-choice questions that candidates have to answer in two hours, which means there's less than a minute to answer each question. But that's not all. The questions cover wide range of topics, including math, world affairs, language, and logic.

Now, before you start thinking that it doesn't sound that difficult, there's more. This is just one part. Apart from the multiple-choice test, there are three hours of essay writing.
