The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport announced the number of testing centres for the high school diploma exam 2021-2022, also known as the Bac II exam, saying that there will be a total of 221 testing centres with 5,227 rooms across the country.
The exam is scheduled to take place on December 5-6, after it was delayed from the earlier date of November 21-22 because that date overlapped with some of the ASEAN Summit meetings being hosted by Cambodia this year as the 2022 chair of ASEAN.
According to an announcement by Minister of Education, Youth and Sport Hang Chuon Naron on October 7, Phnom Penh has the highest number of testing centres at 30 with a total of 944 rooms, followed by Takeo at 17 centres with 389 rooms, Kandal at 15 centres with 419 rooms and Prey Veng at 15 centres with 315 rooms.
Mondulkiri, Stung Treng, Pailin and Kep have the least number of exam centres at just two each respectively.
“The directors of the capital and provincial Departments of Education, Youth and Sport and the directors of each educational institution which has been chosen as an exam centre must get ready for the exams to make sure they are successfully held,” said Chuon Naron.
The minister also instructed all directors of the capital and provincial Departments of Education, Youth and Sport to work with local authorities to ensure public order and safety at each exam centre prior to the start of the exams.
