The Vietnam National University – Hanoi announced its admission policy for 2018 on Thursday, in which performance in the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is also utilized as the standard for selecting students. 

Officials of the university in Hanoi, which is one of the most prestigious universities in the country, said that the higher education institution will use the SAT results to choose its candidates for the 2018 entrance, becoming the first educational institution nationwide to embrace the SAT.

This can be regarded as part of the effort to improve the accuracy in assessing student ability for undergraduate training – something that Vietnam’s Ministry of Education and Training has hitherto tried to do of little avail.     

As in last year, the admission to the institution also takes into account the valid results from one of the following tests: the previous year’s national high-school graduation exam, the university’s own aptitude exam, both of which must be administered by the school, and the A-Level Cambridge International Examination.

According to its training department, most of the university’s educational programs incorporate foreign-language tests in order to guarantee that its graduates can work successfully in an international environment.

The university, formed out of multiple schools, will continue to develop interdisciplinary programs with the determination to provide a highly qualified workforce for the information and automation era.
