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.
