Asia-Pacific Secondary Education System Review Series No. 1: Examination Systems presents different approaches to examinations at the secondary level and highlights key considerations and challenges associated with existing examination systems. This booklet looks at public examinations that focus on individual students, certifying their level of achievement and determining who shall proceed to the next educational level. As policy debates vary from country to country, rather than attempting to provide an in-depth analysis of examination systems, this booklet serves as a starting point for understanding the regional examination landscape.
