Too many methods of university admission, candidates are confused and difficult to choose

In addition to worrying about focusing on reviewing knowledge, this time, Nguyen Phuong Thao, a 12th grader (Dong Da, Hanoi) is spending a lot of time learning how Admissions universities this year.

“Each school has a lot of different admission methods, which can increase the candidate’s chances of being admitted, but because there are too many, I feel confused and confused in choosing. Some schools have the desire to apply for admission. In previous years, they still spent a very large amount of target in terms of graduation exam scores, but this year they sharply decreased this target, based on the results of the competency assessment exam of the university. National University or the thinking assessment exam of Hanoi University of Science and Technology.

Thus, the quota for admission based on graduation exam scores will also be reduced, the competition rate in this method will increase higher than in previous years. I think that in order to increase the chances of being admitted, not only focus on studying subjects according to the combination of graduation exam scores, but also need to participate in separate exams according to the method of the schools.” Thao shared.

“I often read newspapers and go to universities’ websites to monitor enrollment information, but currently Hanoi Medical University has not officially announced the enrollment plan for 2022. Some other universities of Medicine and Pharmacy this year have not announced the enrollment plan for 2022. adding new recruitment combinations, so what I wonder is the quota for block B00 will be reduced or not? I hope schools will soon announce their enrollment plans, especially when there are new test methods or combinations to give candidates time to prepare.” Quan said.

“We ourselves as admissions counselors and 12th graders also feel confused when there are too many enrollment methods. Each school recruits in a different way, even an industry has many different recruitment methods. This will affect the students’ exam preparation process, changing their study strategies. I think that adding an admission method to give more opportunities to candidates, but should only add a few more forms, besides, it still has to be between traditional enrollment methods. This change process also needs to take place with a schedule, if it changes too quickly, it will cause great confusion for students, they do not know which method to choose.

Especially in the context of the epidemic, the explosion of methods will cause inconvenience, cost to society and cause psychological instability among parents, students and teachers of high schools.” Teacher Hien said.

According to Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Thu Thuy, Director of the Higher Education Department, Ministry of Education and Training, statistics show that currently there are about 20 methods of university entrance examination, but still mainly focus on methods such as: considering the results of the high school graduation exam, reviewing the transcripts, recruiting directly… The fact that there are too many enrollment methods, a combination of admissions in an industry, and allocation of quotas between admission methods in the same industry is not reasonable. can lead to negative consequences in public opinion. For example, in 2021, some majors have unusually high admission scores, candidates with 30 points still do not pass.

Schools add multiple admission methods, which leads to the allocation of quotas between methods in the same industry. unreasonable, sharply increasing and decreasing over the years. Besides, changing the enrollment method also makes candidates not prepared in time.” Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Thu Thuy frankly pointed out.

According to the Director of the Higher Education Department, there are schools where the declaration of enrollment quotas has not been consistent between the systems, and has not been properly planned, completed, and completed the process for determining quotas and building develop and publicize the enrollment scheme, admission examination, virtual filtering and report on enrollment results. Or there are schools that do not have control over the pre-qualification conditions, so candidates who are not eligible are still admitted, and have to deal with the problem after the candidates proceed to admission.

In order for the 2022 enrollment season to be effective and fair for candidates, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Thu Thuy requested higher education institutions to declare the admission information of the methods on the exam and enrollment page. for candidates to apply for admission.

It is necessary to ensure the principle of maintaining stability. For the enrollment methods being used, if you want to reduce or eliminate the quota, it is necessary to have a reduction route, for example, not more than 30% of the total target of the industry per year. years, without causing disturbance to the students’ study and practice.
