A grade grads meeting PM

The Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport said the more than 1,000 students who earned A grades in last year’s high school examinations are set for their February 2 meeting with Prime Minister Hun Sen.

In a January 31 letter, it said invitations had been sent out to the 1,049 A grade graduates, who took their exams on December 5, and also to those who passed their technical and vocational certificates level III on October 20.

The invitees were required to take Covid-19 rapid tests a day prior to the meeting.

“Those who record negative test results will be given a sticker that they can use to gain entry to the event,” said the letter.

Ministry spokesman Ros Soveacha said the premier would meet with the graduates at the Chroy Changvar International Convention and Exhibition Centre in the capital’s Chroy Changvar district.

A total of 90,950 students, or 72.33 per cent, passed their 2022 high school diploma exams. Of the passing grades, 1,049 earned an A grade, with 7,232 receiving Bs, 1,905 achieving Cs, 31,166 collecting Ds and 32,450 earning Es.

When the results were announced, Hun Sen complimented the students, particularly those who earned an A. Each year, he traditionally meets with the top-scoring graduates to offer them encouragement.
