Due to COVID-19 prevention and control measures, the Zhejiang Provincial Department of Education recently launched an online exam for those who were unable to take the 2022 Zhejiang Unified Art Exam in offline venues.

Tao Han, an art student from Zhenhai district in Ningbo, East China's Zhejiang province, took the online exam on Dec 11 in a dance room at Luotuo Experimental School in Zhenhai.

Tao would have taken the unified art exam in Hangzhou on Dec 9, according to the instruction on her admission ticket, but was unable to travel due to Ningbo upgrading its COVID-19 emergency response to the highest level and Zhenhai temporarily closing its borders after three positive COVID-19 cases were reported in the area on Dec 7. 

Different plans were introduced to ensure that students would be able to take the unified art exam, said Tang Xiaoshu, deputy director of the Zhejiang Provincial Department of Education, at a news conference held on Dec 10.

According to Tang, test papers would be delivered to students’ homes and supervisors would be appointed by the local epidemic prevention department for students living in areas that were under closed-off management.

Students who were required to stay at home for quarantine would be sent to the closet exam sites, while those who were under medical observation could take the exam in a special room at an offline exam site.
