Summary It's the start of a new academic year, both for 7-year-olds starting boarding school and 18-year-olds starting university. For 18-year-old Wu Yufei, a new life awaits at one of the most prestigious universities in China. But before she can start her studies Wu Yufei must endure 17 days of compulsory military training. It's also a hard beginning for the infants at Ping Ming Primary School. Each child has been hand-picked to receive free education at the charity-run boarding school. But learning to live without your parents when you're only seven years old isn't easy. And for the students enrolling at the county's best school, the new term represents the start of a rigorous daily schedule which starts at 5.30 a.m. and doesn't finish until 9.40pm as they prepare for the pressures of the National College Entrance Exam.Presented by Silvio Rivier.
