Application for universities to be conducted online in HCMC

The Enrolment Council of Vietnam National University - Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCMC) planed that students can apply for the university entrance examination via its website, said the council on December 24 at a meeting with its member universities.

Head of VNU-HCMC’s Academic Affairs Department Dr. Nguyen Quoc Chinh said that the Ministry of Education and Training had assigned the university to hold one of the groups of the national high school exit examination. It is scheduled that around 45,000-50,000 candidates will sit in the group.

VNU-HCMC’s university members including Poly-Technique University, University of Natural Sciences and the University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Ho Chi Minh City  will organize an examination for 12,000 students while the International University, Law-Environment University  will be responsible for holding an examination for 6,000 candidates; IT university and Medicine college will also hold an exam for  6,000 contestants.

It is scheduled that the online network will operate in March, 2015. Each candidate has three choices and they can change their choices to July 15, 2015. Some schools have proposed  that students could register their choice on paper because many students in rural areas do not know how to use internet.

Only good conduct students with average marks of three years in high school up to 6.5 can enroll into universities (with four year studying) and 6.0 into colleges ( with three year studying).
