    » The Council of University Presidents of Thailand, CUPT, has suggested that the National Institute of Educational Testing Service introduces an English version of the national tests which Thai students take to apply for universities. This would hopefully give students who study in English programmes a better chance of entering higher education. It sounds reasonable since EP students aren't as good at Thai as those who study in the Thai programme. CUPT's secretary also said that the English tests should basically be translation of its Thai counterpart. This means we could possibly have the Ordinary National Educational Test (ONET) in both Thai and English in the near future.
