Government to waive Round 3 higher education testing fees

Thailand’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health Anutin Charnvirakul announced that the Thai University Central Admissions System (TCAS) Round three testing fees would be waived to alleviate the financial burden on students and parents. This initiative provides an opportunity for all Thai students to pursue higher education, writes Samantha Rose for The Thaiger.

During a policy presentation and inspection at the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation, the deputy prime minister instructed the ministry and the Council of University Presidents of Thailand to implement this initiative for the 2023 academic year, branded as TCAS 67. It allows students to apply for up to 10 faculty ranks free of charge, saving each individual a maximum of THB900 (US$25).

Nawada Nuengnit, a representative student from Triam Udom Suksa School, expressed her support for the initiative. She believes this initiative will give more children access to education and increase support for round three students, especially those from different provinces or those whose families cannot afford to support their application fees.
