Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
Distinguished National and International Guests,
Dear Participants!

Today, it is my honor and pleasure to participate in the Closing of the 2013-2014 Stocktaking and 2014-2015 Direction Setting Conference of the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport. At the outset, I would like to congratulate on the best result of the conference, considered as an important annual event of the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport (MoEYS).  Indeed, through this conference, we are able to see not only a proud result that the management and all education officials have achieved, but also an opportunity for all stakeholders to understand and further participate in implementing comprehensive reform program of education sector in the spirit of ensuring our national education sector to be more developed responding to new trends of Cambodia’s Socio-economic situation and global trends.

Selected Extempore Comments at the Annual Review Conference of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports for the Year 2013/14 and Directive Setting for 2014/15

In addition to the prepared text at the Annual Review Conference of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports for the 2013/14 and Directive Setting for 2014/15, Samdech Techo made some of the extempore comments:

Students with Mentions D or E Can Study Medicine

Though the conference had not discussed this topic and the Royal Government has yet to issue a letter of notification, I have one matter to bring to your attention. I just consulted with concerned institutions on this issue of getting permission to study medicine. Previously, we had set a ceiling that only graduates of A, B and C mentions of the secondary school would be allowed to study medicine. Those with E and D would not. In the context of reform relating to exam taking by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, where exam will be conducted in a strict manner, from now on, we will offer chance for students who would get a D or an E in their mentions to go on to medicine too. Let me affirm, this will apply only with those passed the exam in 2014 and later.
