Foreign students sit for university entrance exams

QĐND – Friday, July 02, 2010, 21:55 (GMT+7)

Fifty-one foreign students, mostly from the Republic of Korea, sat for university entrance exams on July 1 at HCM City Social Sciences and Humanities University.

Seven visually impaired students will also take the exam, four more than the previous entrance exam period.

Candidates who do not pass the Vietnamese-language test will be able to retake it next year.

The visually impaired students will take their tests in Braille in a separate room.

Universities nationwide have completed preparation for the tests, including selection of rooms, supervisors, security and health offices.

Although Hanoi Power Corporation has promised not to cut power during exams, the Vietnam Academy of Traditional Medicine has set aside electric generators at the test sites.

Many universities around the country could face power shortages during exams. They are working with local power companies and others to ensure that power is maintained.

Thai Nguyen University, for example, said Thai Nguyen Power Company would ensure power during the exams.

Thai Nguyen University has also received financial support from the departments of Transport and Health as well as other relevant authorities.

Because of the large number of candidates, in large cities like Hanoi and HCM City, universities have rented high schools and primary schools for the examinations.
