Very exciting. During Friday’s geography final exam, pre-university students were asked questions about South America for the first time.
In 2014, a special committee of the Board for Tests and Examinations decided to revise the examination schedule for this course. Where previously the ‘developing region’ was the center of Southeast Asia, it is now South America. An area not yet underestimated in geography.

Brazil and Guyana. Answer: High altitude difference, high tributaries, younger mountain range. Whether difficult or not, it took some getting used to in the drawing section.
