HA NOI (VNS) — Educators discussed three methods for organising the 2015 national high school exam at a meeting hosted by the Ministry of Education and Training yesterday in the capital.

Next year's exam, held in the second week of June, will combine the national university entrance exam and high school graduation exam so that students only have to take one.

Their result will determine whether they graduate high school, as well as their admission to university, college or vocational training school.

One of the proposed methods has students sit for tests in three compulsory subjects (maths, literature and foreign language) and one optional subject (physics, chemistry, biology, history or geography).

The second method has the same compulsory tests but only two optional tests, one combining physics, chemistry and biology and another combining history and geography.

The third method includes four compulsory tests: a foreign language test, a test that combines maths and computer science, a test on physics, chemistry, biology and technology and a fourth that includes literature, history, geography and morality.

Speaking at the meeting, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam asked the education ministry to select the most feasible method based on feedback from participants.

The focus should be on choosing a method that benefited society, even if it was difficult for the education sector to implement, he said.

The ministry plans to publicise the selected method in September. — VNS
