Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief
680 Utter Anguish
Everybody would be displeased if Qiao Nan took all the credit.
"Alright, stop laughing. I am telling the truth. The credit has to go to the teachers who taught them for three years, and the third-year students who studied hard during their three years of high school. If the students just entered high school and I helped them spot the exam questions, they would not be able to do as well."
"That's true." Shi Qing finally turned serious. "Alright, I understand what you mean. I have indeed become overly proud of the results. By the way, I heard the mention of houses? What were you referring to? Does the school want to take back the house and want you to move out? It can't be, right?"
Even though Qiao Nan could not take all the credit for the good results in the college entrance examination, at the very least, she contributed to their success.
Qiao Nan helped the school make huge improvements in their results, yet the school wanted her to move out? It was impossible.
"The school did not want us to move, but it's complicated. The principal wants me to go to school tomorrow."
"You have to go to school again!" Shi Qing was shocked. "Perhaps Principal Meng wants to treat you to a meal? I don't understand as well. You were not sitting for the college entrance examination, yet you went to school as frequent as the third-year students."
Previously, although it was summer break, she had to go to school as she needed to spot the exam questions for the students.
Tomorrow, the third-year students would receive their report card and then consider which university they wanted to go to. What would Qiao Nan be doing there?
"I am not sure. Since Principal Meng asked me to go, I have to." Qiao Nan smiled bitterly. She was intolerant to heat, yet she had to keep going outdoors during the hot summer.
"Do you want me to accompany you?"
"Are you sure?"
"Forget it. You'd better accompany me to school." Qiao Nan thought of the previous conversation with Principal Meng on the phone. She decided to bring Shi Qing along such that she could help her if anything cropped up.
The results of the college entrance examinations across the country were released. The atmosphere in the school was as blazing hot as the temperature in July.
Some were happy while some were sad upon getting their detailed report cards.
"Principal Meng?" The teachers of Ping Cheng High School, especially the first- and second-year cohorts' teachers, were shocked when they saw the results. As for the third-year cohort's teachers, they were mentally prepared, so they were not as surprised.
"Haha, good, excellent! By the way, have the results of The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China been released? Give me a copy." Principal Meng was all smiles when he saw that the actual results were similar to the results that the students had calculated after finishing the exams and checking through the answers back in school.
"I am in the midst of it."
Principal Meng was anxious to know the results of The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China. Similarly, Principal Wei was also trying to get his hands on the results of Ping Cheng High School.
Each of them regarded the other party as their opponent. While they were concerned about their school's results, they were just as concerned about the results of the opposing school.
"Have the results of Ping Cheng High School been released? How many of them fall within the cut-off point for the first-tier universities? How many of them for the second-tier universities and how many for the third-tier universities? What is the enrollment rate?" Principal Wei was not interested to know the other details.
Unless they were the top students, it would be good enough to know how many of them qualified for the cut-off point for the first-tier, second-tier, and third-tier universities. The small difference in the marks did not matter. It would only matter when they entered college and wanted to apply for a scholarship.
"Here they are." The vice principal's expression was solemn. He did not feel like looking at the report card of Ping Cheng High School.
"What's wrong?" Principal Wei's heart jumped a bit. The vice principal was beaming in the morning, but he looked terrible right now. "Is there any problem? Bring it over to me." Principal Wei took the report card from the vice principal and scrutinized it. His expression darkened when he saw Ping Cheng High School's results.
Minutes ago, he was elated at the good results of his school, but now, the cheerfulness had evaporated.
Principal Wei waited a good while before he tore the report card of Ping Cheng High School. "Alright, Ping Cheng High School and our school are two different schools. We only have to focus on doing our best. At most, Ping Cheng High School will get to have good results for one more year. It doesn't matter."
"Yes, Principal Wei," the vice principal replied meekly. He did not dare to be as confident and arrogant as he used to be or look down on the methods that Ping Cheng High School used.
After all, the results were there for everyone to see. They were not fooling around. He no longer mocked their innovation. Instead, he commended them for their courage.
The vice principal was given the shock of his life. How did Ping Cheng High School manage to score such astoundingly good results?
He would feel slightly better if the good results were due to the combined efforts of the teachers and students in Ping Cheng High School.
But the problem was that the second-year student who helped spot questions seemed to have made a difference as well!
If possible, the vice principal would also like for his second-year student to spot the questions for the third-year students. But not every second-year student was capable of doing that.
That second-year student in Ping Cheng High School was a geek!
If two years ago…
The vice principal and Principal Wei were thinking about the same thing. Two years ago, when he first heard that the top student in the province for the middle school examination had enrolled into Ping Cheng High School, like Meng Ping, he should have made use of his influence to get Qiao Nan to come to his school. Had he done so, the success that Ping Cheng High School had right now would belong to The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China.
If they did well for this year, The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China no longer needed to be wary of Ping Cheng High School.
Ping Cheng High School would have fallen far behind them.
If he made sure that the teachers paid attention to Qiao Nan's studies and that she scored the highest mark for the college entrance examination, The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China would secure its position as the best high school in Ping Cheng.
Back then, he heard that Qiao Nan did not even consider going to The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China. Hence, he was not interested in getting Qiao Nan to come to their school.
Qiao Nan was, after all, the top student in the province for the middle school examination. She had the potential to be the top student in the college entrance examination!
The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China might have a long history of good results, but their students did not come in the first place in the college entrance examination. No matter how well they performed, they were still a distance from being the best!
Ping Cheng High School was able to do well for the college entrance examination this year. Next year, Qiao Nan would still be able to spot questions for the students.
If Ping Cheng High School continued to have such good results for the college entrance examination next year, the top student would be from that school!
Principal Wei felt like spitting blood at the thought of that. He felt more anguished than the vice principal.
If that happened, The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China would not be able to become the best high school in Ping Cheng. Instead, Ping Cheng High School would surpass them, becoming the best high school!!
Principal Wei felt nothing but anguish as he watched helplessly while his ambitious dream extinguished before him. On the other hand, Meng Ping was able to achieve it effortlessly with Qiao Nan's help.
