A considerable number of students in Vietnam who took part in the national high school exam in 2018 had their scores increased illegally, causing public outrage.

The Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) and Vietnamese police launched an investigation when test results for students in Son La, Ha Giang and Hoa Binh provinces were reported to be abnormally high, Viet Nam News reported.

It was later alleged that a number of education officials in these provinces altered the test results for some students. The MOET announced on March 23 that one of the 44 modified test results in Son La province was increased by almost 30%.

The MOET asked the provincial Department of Education and Training to update the new test results and inform institutions where the alterations were made. In addition, 56 students in Hot Binh also had their scores increased.

The MOET will be separating the marking procedures in 2019. Universities and colleges will be assigned to monitor the grading of multiple-choice tests. Local education departments will be given literature tests as they are supervised by universities and colleges as well.
