Mawlamyine, June (18)
The students who sat the exam held by the junta may not qualify because they have only five months of study including in person class, the CDM teachers criticized.
The junta reopened schools in November last year amid the rising COVID-19 breakout, forcing matriculation exams to be held by the end of March.
Students are also instructed to study only what will be asked on the exam, with the result that those who pass will not be qualified.
According to a CDM teacher, the fact that the students passed the exam with distinctions despite not having enough study time makes the teachers unthinkable for the country’s future.
Of the 280,000 students who took the 2022 matriculation exam held by the junta, more than 130,000 passed, with a pass rate of 46.88 percent according to the data released by the junta’s Ministry of Education.
In Mon State, 6,400 out of over 11,000 students who took the matriculation exam passed, giving the state the highest success rate in the country with 57.21 percent.
The national pass rate has increased by about 14 percent this year under the military council, compared to 32.06 percent last year.
The Ministry of Education of the National Unity Government (NUG) said on June 17 that the military council’s matriculation exam results would not be recognized.
