Going to the first exam, students attach a white carnation on clothes, for all subsequent pink ones. But students who pass the last exam, be sure to attach a red flower. And those lucky ones who have passed all the exams well are thrown in garbage.

2. Germany

After the teacher gives the closing speech in the last lecture before the session. However, German students are in no hurry to leave the audience. First, they pull their hands together with their knuckles and knock on the tables for several seconds, thus marking the completion of their studies. Also, after successful entry to the university and before the exams, students stand in a queue to kiss the bronze cheek of the Gänseliesel statue or bring her a bunch of flowers.

3. Russia

Russian students have a tradition of calling “freebies” before an exam. It is necessary at 12 o’clock in the morning before the exam to open the window, and in the window shout 3 times “freebie, come.” then close the window. You can put a notebook or a textbook under the pillow and sleep on it the night before the exam to keep all the material covered in your head better.

Also, the student who goes to the exam is usually “scolded”, thus wishing that he should concentrate and pass all the exams well.

8. Vietnam

Students before exams tried to avoid eating bananas, eggs and food cooked with black been. Also, they try to eat as much sticky rice with bean as possible, because in Vietnamese is ‘đỗ’, which also means ‘pass’.

9. China
