Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung ordered people’s committee leaders and the Ministry of Education and Training to encourage organizations and all sectors to help disadvantaged students to sit for the high school graduation examination and university entrance examination.
The government office has just issued the PM’s guidelines on organizing the two examinations. As per the PM’s instructions, the Ministry of Education and Training liaised with the Ministry of Finance to issue a document on the examination participation and enrollment fees which are not allowed to be higher than the present regulation.
The PM asked municipal and provincial people’s committees in co-ordination with the Ministry to organize examination following the guidelines. Local governments should pay attention to students and their relatives’ accommodation and regulate traffic, food safety and hygiene and security order.
Along with these, local administrators should call for the contribution of organizations and individuals to aid poor students from ethnic minority groups, from meager-income families and those living in distant and disadvantaged districts so that all students can sit for the examinations.
