There but for...

I'm researching for a trip to China, and came across this site with the caption:
Art colleges entrance exam in Shangdong Province. The 8,000 candidates for art schools are gathered at a 20,000 square-meter size conference center to participate in the exam in Jinan-capital city of Shandong. (Feb. 5, 2009)

From other photos on the site, you can see that all of them are sketching a portrait--with mixed results. I've wondered how different it would have been to pursue art in China, and here was a stark example. I wonder what percentage made it; the site didn't explain.
