On May 22, 2016, senior high school students at No. 2 High School in Hengshui, North China,  played with balloons to decrease the level of stress before they sat for the college entrance examination which was scheduled for June 7.

Elsewhere, senior high school students at Fangshan high school wrote their expectations for the approaching college entrance examinations on balloons in their classrooms. This was also aimed at making them more relaxed and less tensed. This was done on May 19, 2016. On that same day, 12th graders of this same school massaged each other in the middle of their preparation for the examination. This also had a relaxation effect.

In Dingyuan High School, the students were engaged in an arm wrestling contest with teachers to ease the tension ahead of the dreaded examinations. These students also played different games during break time to relax themselves.

At No.1 High School of Wenxian County, 12th graders threw airplanes made out of paper as they prepared for the entrance exams. Students in this school also held discussions which seemed to be more interesting and relaxing compared to individual reading.
