Although many people reportedly told Liang that his "bad memory" would prevent him from studying textbooks like his younger peers, he is determined to score high enough on this year's gaokao exam to get into Sichuan University, which is his first time attending. tried missed in 1983.

The gaokao exam, which translates to "high exam", is China's annual standardized college entrance exam, usually taken in the third and last year of high school. It is known that it is very difficult.

Liang had to miss the exam 14 times due to work and regulations requiring students to be unmarried and under 25 years old, which were later repealed in 2001.

Last June, Liang scored 403 out of 750, while the minimum score for admission to Sichuan University is 521. “The desire to go to college was strong,” he says.

“I will continue to take gaokao until it becomes clear that my dream cannot be realized,” Liang said.

After years of failing the science portion of the exam, which is required for those applying as science students, Liang decided to transfer to the Faculty of Arts and Humanities because he thinks it might be easier to prepare for.

Online users nicknamed Liang "gaokao dingjihu," which translates to "household with nails," referring to people who never leave their home and don't give up despite numerous setbacks.

Liang currently owns a building materials company in Chengdu, the capital of southwest China's Sichuan province.
