Huize county in Yunnan province, one of the 52 poverty-stricken counties, has impressed everyone with outstanding performance in the national college entrance examination, or gaokao, this year. Around 80 percent of 6,796 candidates from Huize registered the minimum admission score or above, about 30 percent registered the minimum admission score or above for key universities and 11 candidates got admission to one of the country's top two universities, Peking University and Tsinghua University.

Since 2010, some 139 students have got admission to Peking University or Tsinghua University, more than 30 percent of them from poverty-stricken households. Tens of thousands of students from impoverished families have successfully entered college, starting a new journey to change their destiny.

What students from Huize have achieved is huge for an impoverished county of 1 million people, around 30 percent of them poverty-stricken.
