Backup teachers and support staff are ready for any unusual circumstance. Examinees must strictly follow all examination rules and pandemic preventive measures,” said Mr. Do.

Co To island district in Quang Ninh province will have 95 examinees. The district will make allowance for disadvantaged pupils and pupils who live far from the examination site.
