University entrance exam results announced

In Uncategorized on July 24, 2010 at 11:16 am

Universities nationwide on Friday continued to announce results of the university entrance exams this year. However, universities have planned for reducing their standard marks because of low results, aiming to create more chance for students to study in higher education.

The national standard mark ruled by the Ministry of Education and Training is the minimum mark for university entrance. However, not all students who get marks higher than the standard marks may have a chance to study in higher education because every university or college regulates its own standard marks, depending on quality of students who apply for the school.

On the same day, plentiful universities in the north also published their results of entrance exams.

Student Duong Hoang Hung came first in the entrance exams of the National Economics University with 29.5 for three exam subjects of A group (mathematics, physics and chemistry).

To date, there are 20 universities announced their university entrance marks.
According to statistics from the Ministry of Education and Training, as many as 1.8 million candidates had registered for this year’s examination, of which 1.3 million had applied for universities and 500,000 for colleges.

Nearly 54 per cent of candidates chose to sit group A subjects, followed by group B (mathematics, chemistry, biology) 19.8 per cent, group D (literature, mathematics, foreign languages 15.2 per cent), group C (literature, history, geography) 8 per cent, and the other groups nearly 3.4 per cent.

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.
