提高一分,干掉千人: Kill (defeat) one thousand (competitors) with one mark higher

扛得住给我扛,扛不住给我死扛: Hold the pressure if you can, hold the pressure with full strength if you can not

就算装得头破血流,也要闯进一本线的大楼: Dash to the line for first class universities even if you are bumped and bruised.

不比智力比努力,不比起点比进步: Do not compare your intelligence, but your efforts with other; Do not compare your starting point but your progress with others.

要成功先发疯,下定决心往前冲: Get crazy first if you want to succeed, be determined to dash forward

只要学不死,就往死里学: As long as you do not die from studying, study hard to death.
