The Council of University Presidents of Thailand (CUPT) has requested an English version of the national tests which students sit to apply for universities to offer more chances for English Programme (EP) students to enter tertiary education.

The call comes after CUPT received complaints from schools with EPs that their students who study in the special programmes are unable to fully understand some of the questions in the standardised exams as they are only written in Thai. The Thai tests are the Ordinary National Education Test (Onet), the national nine core subject examinations, the General Aptitude Test (Gat) and the Professional Aptitude Test (Pat).
