Exams for the two subjects, which should be finished on Tuesday as a national schedule, will be arranged to take place on another date.

A heavy and continuous rainfall has been hitting the area since the beginning of July, resulting in many difficulties for carrying on the exam, according to the local government.

Official data shows the county has 2,769 students for this year's gaokao, while a local education official told people.cn only around 500 had arrived at the examination sites by 10 am.

Heavy rainfall has caused flooding in many areas of Huangshan city, which governs the county, according to the local government.
