This year's national college entrance exams have just finished, but candidates have to wait for at least two weeks to get their final results. After experiencing the psychological pressure of the exams, they cannot relax until the results are issued.

Walking out of the examination rooms, some students look relaxed and happy, while others are nervous and quiet. Candidates say, although the exams are over, the next two weeks are even tougher.

A high school student of Guizhou said, "We won't feel relieved until we have the results. Right now we just have a general feeling, but the results are still unknown. "

Students' parents say they don't have any special plan for this period of time. They will let their children decide.

A Guizhou student's parent said, "We have to work and we don't really have much time to accompany him. "

Right now, candidates just have to wait. But this crucial period of time, can cause them psychological problems. Some doubt whether they've done well and some can't help but check for answers on the Internet. Others think they might have let their parents and tutors down.

Li Zhining, middle school teacher, said, "We always ask candidates to relieve their psychological burden. It's good for their mental health if they can open their hearts. More importantly, they can make a better plan for their future."

In general, only about 60% candidates can get a good result in the examination. About 20% of them cannot get the results they hoped for. Experts point out that the education system still lacks post-exam psychological support. More attention should be paid to the mental conditions of those after-exam candidates.
