This was in response to students’ plea that entrance exams under the Thai University Central Admission System (TCAS) for this year be rescheduled as they overlap their school-leaving tests.

He said TCAS cannot reschedule the exams because it will affect the 300,000 students waiting to take the O-Net test on March 27-28 for admission to high school.

Bundhit also pointed out that students had at least three years to prepare for these exams, so there should be no reason to change the date.
