The content of this book includes a document that records information about inter-provincial examinations held during the Le Dynasty. There are also biographical information of 17072 scholars who have passed these inter-provincial exams. The Confucian court examination system in Vietnam (1075 – 1913) was a system for entry into the civil service modelled on the Imperial examination in China, based on knowledge of the classics and literary style. The exams entered Vietnam during the long era of Chinese occupation and adopted by subsequent independent dynasties as a way of filling the civil service. They were instituted at court level by the Ly Dynasty's Emperor Ly Nhan Tong in 1075 and continued some 1000 years later toward the final years of the Nguyen Dynasty's Emperor Khai Đinh. The examinations were suspended by the French in 1913 with the very last local exams occurring from 1915 to 1919, thus making Vietnam the last country to hold Confucian civil service examinations.
