Cambodia is set to conduct its national examination for Grade 12 high school students on November 6, involving 137,412 candidates across the nation. The two-day examination will officially open at Preah Sisowath High School in Phnom Penh, presided over by H.E. Hang Chuoun Naron, Minister of Education, Youth, and Sports.
According to Agence Kampuchea Presse, students spent the day before the examination verifying their names and table numbers on information boards set up at each high school and exam center. This preparation is part of the rigorous process ensuring the smooth conduct of the nationwide exams.
Candidates will be tested in a variety of subjects including earth and environment, geography, history, biology, foreign languages, Khmer literature, mathematics, chemistry, physics, and morality-civics. The results for students in Phnom Penh and Kandal province are expected to be announced on November 28, with the results for students in other provinces to be released the following day.
The examination serves as a critical milestone for Cambodian students, acting as a prerequisite for high school graduates to continue their education at the university level. Last year’s examination saw 90,950, or 72.33 percent, of the total 125,735 candidates successfully passing their annual high school graduation exam.
