The MOET allows the heads of the people’s committees of cities and provinces to decide on whether to resume classes from March 2.

Vietnam’s Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) has decided to extend the time frame for the 2019-2020 school year due to the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic, Zing.vn reported on February 22, quoting Nguyen Xuan Thanh, deputy director of the Department of Secondary Education under the MoET.

Specifically, the school year will end by June 30, around one month later than the normal schedule. Evalutions for primary and secondary school graduation will take place by July 15 at the latest, enrollment for 10th grade will be due on August 15 and national senior high school exam will be held from July 23 to July 26.

Besides, the MOET lets the heads of the people’s committees of cities and provinces decide whether to resume classes from March 2.

In case they decide to let the students return to school later in March, the authorities must rely on the above-mentioned schedule to create a compensatory study plan and ensure the program, finish the school year and organize the national senior high school exam.

Thus, the national high school exam in 2020 will take place nearly one month later than usual to offset the time of school break that was aimed to prevent the Covid-19 epidemic.
