Nearly one million pupils across Vietnam have finished the most important test of their lives so far, the national exam, which will decide whether they are admitted to their dream university.
While some may just walk a few steps to get to the exam hall, some were isolated by floods and had to wait for the army and police for help to sit their exams on time.
Anxiety, anticipation and hope are emotions likely to be seen during this time of the year. It is also moving to see the affection that parents, schools and the army and police have for the pupils.
