Of the figure, 856,271 are full-time candidates and the rest are continuing-education students, said Ngo Kim Khoi, Head of the Ministry’s Educational Testing and Quality Assessment Department.
The number of students doing exams fell by 8.5 percent compared to last year’s figures, he said.
Full-time graders will be tested in six subjects, namely literature, chemistry, geography, history, mathematics and a foreign language of English, Russian, French, Chinese, German or Japanese.
Those who attend high-school part-time or evening courses will take a physics exam instead of a foreign language exam.
Multiple choice tests will be used for the foreign language, chemistry and physics while essay tests will be used for the remaining subjects.
More than 124,000 teachers and educational officers will be responsible for supervising examinations, which need 40,620 classrooms nationwide.
