HÀ NỘI — More than one million candidates nationwide on Wednesday afternoon attended exam sites to complete procedures for the high school graduation test, which starts on Thursday.

The candidates listened to the exam regulations, checked their information and corrected any errors.

Exam supervisors went to sites at 8 a.m. to thoroughly understand the regulations and implement issues related to exam proctoring.

According to the High School Graduation Exam Regulations 2024 of the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET), candidates must present their identity (ID) cards and receive exam admission cards at their designated sites.

If the candidates find any errors related to their names and priorities, they must immediately notify the exam supervisors or people on duty to correct them.

If candidates lose their ID cards or other necessary documents, they must immediately report to the exam site managers.

At the exam procedure session, the invigilators also again informed the candidates about the exam schedule and the items not allowed into the exam room.

Banned items include alcoholic drinks, explosive and incendiary weapons and substances; communication devices that can receive or broadcast information, record audio and video, or devices containing information that could assist pupils to cheat.

If a candidate violates the regulation and brings one of the prohibited items, they will be suspended from the exam, which means they will get a score of zero on that subject and will not be able to take the next subject.

According to statistics from the MoET, a total of 1,071,393 candidates registered to take the exam this year, an increase of more than 45,000 compared to last year.

Total exam places are 2,323, an increase of 51 compared to last year.

On Thursday morning, the candidates will take the literature test and then the mathematics in the afternoon.

On Friday morning, students will take one of two combined tests: natural sciences (physics, chemistry, biology) and social sciences (history, geography, citizenship education). In the afternoon, they will take a foreign language test. — VNS
