Police officers escort Nguyen Thi Hong Nga, 51, a member of the examination and quality management office under the Son La Department for Education and Training.


The suspects include Nguyen Thi Hong Nga, 51, a member of the examination and quality management office under the provincial Department for Education and Training. When the national high school exam took place, she was secretary of the local steering board and member of the multiple-choice marking group. The other two are Dang Huu Thuy, 54, Vice Rector of To Hieu High School and member of the multiple-choice test marking group, and Lo Van Huynh, 53, head of Nga’s office, member of the exam steering board, and head of the exam secretariat board. 

Son La police also launched criminal proceedings against two other suspects. 

Tran Xuan Yen, 47, who held multiple roles as Vice Director of the provincial Department of Education and Training, member of the exam steering board, Vice Chairman of the provincial exam board, deputy head of the test marking board, and head of the multiple-choice test marking group; and Cam Thi Bun Son, 49, an official at the provincial Department of Education and Training and a member of the multiple-choice test marking group, were both charged with abusing their position and power.

Yen and Son have been placed under house arrest.

Earlier, on July 26, the police department began criminal proceedings against the high school exam fraud.

In Son La, the average scores for math and physics were 3.43 and 4.03, lower than the national average of 4.88 and 4.96, respectively. However, 30 students achieved nine out of 10 points and above for the math test, and 13 students scored nine points or higher in the physics exam.

The results of the national high school examination have been used for the last four years to determine whether a student graduates from high school and gets into their chosen university or not.

Since 2017, all tests except literature have been multiple-choice. In 2018, the education ministry tightened exam security by requiring sealed bags of answer sheets, signed by relevant supervisors and university representatives.–VNA
