MOST HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS PASS ENGLISH REGENTS

Most of New York's high school seniors have passed the state's required Regents test in English, despite fears that hundreds of thousands of them would miss graduating this spring because of new state diploma requirements.

State Education Commissioner Richard P. Mills told a forum on education standards at Union College in Schenectady this month that more than 90 percent of the seniors have already made the grade on the English Regents test.

Education officials previously had announced that three out of four students required to pass a Regents English exam before graduation had done so.

On Monday, Mills will release the scores of the seniors who took the test before January.
