Some 205,000 pupils ready for finals

About 205,000 school pupils will begin taking their final school exams next week, up 4,000 on last year.

Of these, some 115,000 are taking vocational training tests (vmbo). The rest are taking exams which entitle them to go to university or hbo college.
As in previous years, LAKS, the school pupils’ union, will open its exam hotline for complaints from 11.30 to 19.00 every day during the two-week exam period.
