After two days of university entrance examinations, the Ministry of Education announced a better exam process than previous years, with only some minor set-backs.

Although there were more than 1,600 candidates absent, 70 cases of candidates with health problems and more than 10 cases of candidates who committed misdemeanours, the ministry reported a smooth process.

“The candidates respected the rules of the exam well,” the ministry said. “Almost no documents, notes and prohibited equipment were brought into the exam room.”

Meanwhile, the Anti-Corruption Unit reported a couple of minor set-backs, such as a student found hiding in the Pursat secondary school’s food store to escape the exam, and a fire in Battambang that destroyed a teacher’s house while they worked as an invigilator. 

Prime Minister Hun Sen announced yesterday that students who passed with a Grade A would be allowed to meet with him at the Peace Palace, as had been done in previous years.

The Ministry of Education will announce the results in each of the exam centres in Phnom Penh and Kandal province on September 12, and for exam centres in the provinces on September 13.
