The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport in Cambodia has announced record-breaking results for the BAC II exams, signaling a significant stride towards academic excellence in the country. As part of the government’s Pentagonal Strategy, aimed at improving education quality, this achievement reflects the dedication and efforts of both students and educators.

Out of 137,412 high school students who sat for the exams, a remarkable 72.89% successfully passed this year, totaling 98,460 students. This surpasses last year’s pass rate of 72.33%. The breakdown of grades reveals that 1,673 students secured Grade A, 6,964 attained Grade B, 18,308 received Grade C, 34,246 achieved Grade D, and 37,269 obtained Grade E.

The increase in students attaining Grade A this year is attributed to a combination of factors. Firstly, students’ disciplined approach, adherence to the law, and compliance with the Ministry’s guiding principles have played a crucial role. Secondly, there has been a noticeable improvement in the quality of education provided in the country. Lastly, the Ministry’s diligent implementation of comprehensive education reforms has contributed to creating an enabling environment for students to excel.

The Ministry has emphasized that the BAC II exams were conducted fairly, transparently, and in accordance with the law. While celebrating the achievements of successful students, the Ministry also urged students who did not achieve their desired outcomes not to protest the results. The focus remains on encouraging all students to embrace opportunities for growth and improvement.

The announcement of the results evoked varied emotions among students and their families. While some students were overjoyed, having surpassed their own expectations, others expressed disappointment. However, it is important to note that these exam results may not necessarily reflect each student’s overall academic progress.

Education expert Dr. Quach Mengly highlighted the need for students who did not pass the exams to view this as an opportunity rather than a setback. He emphasized the importance of seeking technical skills that are in high demand, which would contribute to Cambodia’s progress in the years to come.

Prime Minister Hun Manet extended his congratulations to the students who achieved good grades. For those who did not pass, he encouraged them to either retake the exams the following year or explore vocational skills while continuing their education for a brighter future.

The government’s Pentagonal Strategy Phase 1 aims to further enhance education quality through various strategic priorities. These include school reform programs, teacher development, digital education, science and technology education, school health improvement, youth development, the establishment of Centers of Excellence in higher education, and system building and capacity development. With a multi-faceted approach, Cambodia is committed to delivering high-quality education and nurturing skilled human resources to drive its development.
