More than 838,000 students have registered to sit for this year’s second round of university and college entrance examinations, which will take place on July 9-10.

According to the Ministry of Education and Training, the first examinations were sat by over 650,000 candidates, accounting for almost 77.1 percent of the total number registered across the country.

The examination councils of universities have mobilised almost 69,500 exam monitors to supervise the exams and prevent cheating.

About 10,000 volunteer students from universities and colleges in Hanoi and neighboring provinces and cities have participated in supporting examinees and their relatives in this year’s tough exam season.

The volunteers will be ready at public places such as train and coach stations and the gates of universities to provide necessary information about exams, location, accommodations and means of transportation.-VNA
