The corner of Chen Yuan’s mouth involuntarily curled up. He nodded and said calmly, “Okay. Let me know in advance before you get back, and I will get my mother to cook it first.”
Afraid that Qiao Nian didn’t understand, he explained, “The old hen has been raised for several years, and I’m afraid that it won’t be stewed properly in just an hour or two. If you want to eat it, it needs to be stewed for at least half a day.”
In fact, he didn’t need to explain, as Qiao Nian did not think too much about it. She agreed readily, her dark eyes as beautiful as ink. She then pulled down her cap and said sassily, “I see. I’ll tell you in advance when I’m about to come back.”
“Okay.” Chen Yuan smiled sincerely as he looked at the girl’s fair side profile. He pursed his lips and said seriously, “Sister Nian, I’ve thought about it. I want to take the college entrance examination and apply to Nanjing University, for their Computing faculty.”
Qiao Nian didn’t expect that he would also want to go to a university in Beijing, much less Nanjing University which was next to Qing University.
Come shock could be seen on her face, but she didn’t say much. She simply raised her eyes, gave him the same serious expression, and asked, “Have you thought about it carefully?
“Nanjing University is hard to get into, especially the Computing faculty, which is regarded as their best major. If you want to enter through the College Entrance Examination, you must at least score over 700 points.”
The full marks for the College Entrance Examination was 750 points.
150 points each for Chinese, Mathematics, and Second Language, and 300 points for the Sciences and Humanities combined.
The annual admission score of Nanjing University was similar to that of Qing University, which was above 650 points. But this score was only enough for one to be admitted into the school. If they wanted to study Computing, they had to stand out from a large number of candidates who were also admitted with a score of 650 points or above. That would be about 30 points above the cut-off point, at the very least.
She knew how well Chen Yuan did in school.
He could get into a top-tier school quite easily, but to get into Nanjing University or Qing University, in particular, was a bit difficult.
Qiao Nian looked at him and asked, “Are you confident?”
Chen Yuan leaned against the podium like she did and chuckled in a lazy but humorous tone. “I’m not.”
He was as honest as he could get!
Qiao Nian was speechless.
He saw some rare surprise on her face. He smiled and was a little less serious than before as he shrugged his shoulders and showed some vigor that an 18-year-old hardly displayed. “My current grades would give me about 630 points in the College Entrance Examination, 20 points away from Nanjing University’s previous admission scores. So, if you ask me if I’m confident, I’ll have to say I’m definitely not confident…
“But I’ve already made up my mind. Either I study for another year instead of going to college, or I go to the best university to study the best major!”
The conditions of his family did not allow him to waste four years in college. If he completed the four years and graduated like just another student, he would rather not attend college at all.
Qiao Nian raised her brows and said nothing.
Chen Yuan said slowly and calmly, “There’s still more than two months before the College Entrance Examination. I will use my time wisely and study hard, maybe I’ll have a chance. If I don’t succeed, then I’ll think about it again.”
After speaking, he turned to look at her again and smiled. “Sister Nian, you don’t know this, but after you confirmed that you were going to Qing University, everyone in the class decided to go to a university in Beijing as well.
“Liang Bowen and Shen Qingqing have already decided to try for Qing University, and Jiang Tingting and the others also want to be admitted to a university in Beijing. The few people in the class who did not choose a university in Beijing also chose a nearby school…” He squinted and smiled. “Sister Nian, given your charm, are you sure you won’t consider the entertainment industry?
“If you’re willing to enter the entertainment industry, I think you can become quite popular.”
He was somewhat joking with his words.
He had no idea that the girl standing in front of him was Big Boss Zhui Guang, whose popularity had shot to the stars recently.
