6,000 scholarships offered to Grade 12 students in Battambang

Minister of Interior Sar Kheng, through the Battambang youth development working group, will offer 6,000 two-month remote learning scholarships to grade 12 students in the province. The course will run from September to late October.

Representative to the Battambang youth development working group Sok Veasna told The Post on August 4 that the course will be online. Students will be taught by teachers from the New Generation School and can interact with instructors and students, take assignments and exams, and check results on mobile apps.

“To graduate, students take a joint exam like the national 12 examination and results are returned to students. Students can study English through an e-library that contains many documents and books as well as self-study material on video from the education ministry and New Generation School,” he said.

Veasna added that students and guardians in the province who are interested in the scholarships can contact the Battambang youth development working group for more information.

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport on June 17 issued guidelines setting November 15 for the junior high school (grade 9) and December 6 for the high school exams at state schools for the 2020-21 academic year.

The ministry has allowed private institutions to hold exams at their respective establishments on October 11 for junior high and October 25 for high school.

Veasna said that before the Covid-19 pandemic began, Sar Kheng had opened training courses for students preparing for the high school exam. But this year the course was held online due to the pandemic.

He added that for the 2020-21 academic year, Battambang had more than 6,000 students taking the exam. So, offering scholarships is a way to assist students in preparing for a successful exam result.
