Depression For Viet Nam Students Unable to Buy their Diploma?? – 08/17/2014

“Two senior officials of a center for continuing education in northern Vietnam have been dismissed for accepting a total of VND 1 billion (US$50,000) in bribes from 40 test-takers – some of whom they failed.”

“The test takers had reportedly paid VND28 million ($1,400) each to pass the test.”

“However, only seven actually passed the examination.”
“Members of the rest of the group later filed a written complaint with provincial leaders to bring the scandal to the public’s attention.”
“A survey of 1,727 secondary school students found that nearly 26 percent suffer mental problems.”
No wonder they are depressed,  if you pay that much good money and can’t even buy a passing grade at an exam……….;+)
