A source in Jagangdo said, “The blockade prevented students from going to school, so they took the end-of-year exams at home,” and said, “It was conducted in a way that teachers took the test papers and went to the students’ house.”

Regarding this, a source from Yanggang Province said, “It’s a kind of’money’, but the teacher will give you the answer, so I made money by asking me to pay.” “If you give all the answers, you get 100 dollars (dollars) and 70% of them give you 70 dollars. I received the money, but because I can’t use my daughter well now, the teachers calculated it with national money (North Korean money) and received the money.”
