According to the Department’s plan, from now until May 16, students can adjust their wishes. Registration form for candidates will be distributed from 19/5.
In order to determine the appropriate aspirations to enter the 10th grade, an admissions expert advises students to use the results of the second semester test in Literature, Mathematics, and Foreign Languages to estimate their ability. Usually, the semester test follows the structure and content of the 10th grade entrance exam.
Accordingly, candidates calculate the total score according to the old admissions formula, including Literature and Math multiplied by a factor of 2, plus foreign language score of coefficient 1; Next, subtract 10-15% of this total score because the 10th grade exam questions are often more difficult. From these results, they compare with the benchmark scores of schools in recent years, balance with this year’s competitive rate to find a school that matches their abilities and interests.
The exam takes place on June 11 and 12. Candidates compete in three subjects Math, Literature, Foreign Language. Students who enter the 10th grade major or the integrated English program will take additional specialized and integrated exams.
This year, Ho Chi Minh City has about 100,000 candidates graduating from secondary school. Students who do not register for the 10th grade exam can continue studying at non-public high schools, continuing education centers, and vocational schools.
