What's on Weibo
It’s early June and that means it’s time for the gaokao, the national college entrance exams. For many Chinese students, it is the most important exam of their lives, and the exams are all the talk on Weibo. 
A special school for HIV-positive children sparked debate on Chinese social media this week after getting authorization to install their own separate exam room for this year’s gaokao. Read all about it in our recent article
After the recent terrorist attack at the London Bridge, people were outraged on Twitter and Facebook about CNN allegedly ‘staging’ an anti-ISIS protest by Muslims. The video was also widely shared on Weibo, where some say that “Chinese media might be selective in what they report, but Western media are creative in how they report.” For more about that and other trending topics, see the overview of our recent posts.
