This morning students had to walk / run through traffic on Rangsit expressway / road to take TU (Thamassat University) STAR exam at 8 am. This exam is for students who want to study at Thamassat University in future after they graduate from high school. Students from across Thailand come to take this exam to pursue their study at the popular Thamassat University.
Almost 30, 000 students took the test today. Dorms, rooms and apartments near the university are full as there is only one location for examination. Because of the traffic students had to get out of the car and rush to the examination hall and some had to take the motorbike taxi.
However, the misery didn’t just stop after the exam as when students tried to call their parents the telecom network connectivity got down. Thamassat University will hold TU STAR exam again on December 18th, 2016 so hopefully the authorities, parent and student body will be well prepared next time.
