Universities nationwide announced the admission scores for the 2020-21 academic year early this week.

Hundreds of thousands of 12th graders took the national high school exam in August and September for high school graduation and university/college admission.
To graduate from high school, students have to take tests in three compulsory subjects (maths, literature, and foreign language) and one optional subject.
They have to take extra tests in other subjects according to their chosen majors and universities. Candidates can choose scores in three subjects to apply for universities.
The maximum admission score is 30 for three subjects and 40 for majors that require double scores in a foreign language or talent tests.

The Ministry of Education and Training has allowed candidates to apply to as many universities as they want. Candidates must list their priorities so that if they fail to get into their top choice university, they will be considered for the second one.
According to the Ministry of Education and Training, the total number of candidates registering for university/college admission in 2020 was 642,945, with nearly 2.5 million registered options.

The admission score has reached the maximum points of 30 for Korean Studies at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Vietnam National University Hanoi. According to Hoang Anh Tuan, deputy principal of the university, the admission scores of the school increased by 0.5 to 2 points compared to last year.  But the biggest surprise was that the Korean Studies admitted the maximum points of 30 for three subjects: Literature, History and Geography. 

The admission criteria number of the Korean Studies this year is 50 but 30 candidates have been exempted from the exam. The admission quota for those who sat the exam is only 16-20 so the admission scores have surged, he explained.
It means candidates had to score 30 in three subjects’ tests or score at least 27.25 points for the tests and earned more from bonus points, he said.

The national high school exam this year was delayed from June to August and September due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
