As millions of students sit the most important test in their life on June , a teacher in Chongqing found a special way to express her blessings to her students: a red packet.

Yang Fan,a Chinese-language teacher at Southwest China's Chongqing Yucai Middle School, took a month to prepare a gift package for each of her 120 students before the national college entrance exam, known as gaokao. In the red envelope, there is a bookmark printed with the pictures of China's famous universities. On the back of each bookmark, Yang wrote poems to express her blessings and encouragement.

The teacher also sent students a pen with the envelope, hoping they can write a new chapter in their life with it.

"The students can write their wishes with the pen on the bookmark before the test," Yang said. "It is a tradition in my classes in recent years."

The entrance exam will take place on June 7 and 8.

"Many students are nervous right now," Yang said. "I hope my gift can calm them down and boost their confidence."
