Question: "This year my child intends to take intermediate exams, vocational colleges exams." I've heard that the regional priority plus policy only applies to the area where candidates study. Is that true?
Law Department – ACDC advises:
Pursuant to Appendix I issued together with the Circular No. 05/2017/TT-BLDTBXH of March 2, 2017 of the Minister of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs on regulations on admission and determination of criteria for admission of intermediate and college level on policies according to the region as follows:
"5. Regional Priority Policy
a) Candidates who study continuously and graduate from high school in any region are entitled to priority according to that area.
