ABOUT 800,000 students in four regions nationwide have joined the 19th Intensive Tutoring for Admission Exam campaign, hosted by Sahapatthanapibul and The Nation, over seven days.
Sahapatthanapibul Plc vice director Vathit Chokwatana yesterday told the opening ceremony at the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce that the project had been held annually for almost 20 years to promote equal learning opportunities for all young people in Thailand.
“We realised the importance of education and the enhancement of young people’s quality of life,” said Vathit. “We focus on providing live-tutoring in a regional university and broadcasting the tutoring through the Internet in four regions.”
These include University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce for the Central region, Naresuan University for the North, Khon Kaen University for the Northeast, and Hat Yai University for the South. The Internet broadcasting is being supported by Data Pro Computer System Co Ltd.
There will be special tutoring at the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce on Sunday while the seven-day online tutoring will be aired to schools and universities joining the project, Vathit explained.
He said the project would focus on modernised and intensive tutoring for the Ordinary National Educational Test (ONET), General Aptitude Test (GAT) and Professional and Academic Aptitude Test (PAT) in nine ordinary subjects including mathematics, Thai, English, social studies, science, physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering.
