THUA THIEN HUE (VNS) — People with an interest in Viet Nam's education system during feudal times have a chance to figure out how examinations were conducted in the past at an exhibition in Hue.
The Hue Monuments Conservation Centre is displaying 50 posters in the former Royal Palace in collaboration with the Van Mieu - Quoc Tu Giam Centre in Ha Noi.
Each poster shows feudal-time examinations, examination halls, royal prints and certificates, as well as classrooms in Ha Noi and Hue.
Some of the posters also feature celebrations and banquets for students who came top of their classes and went on to become mandarins and the pride of the whole community. The month-long exhibition is free to the public, and celebrates the country's educational traditions and feudal system from 1075 to 1919. — VNS
