by November 22, 2016 Key Issues

Vice Minister of Education and Science Elmira Sukhanberdiyeva at the press conference, which followed the Government meeting, informed that the new UNT format will not create barriers to enter the higher educational institutions.

I think there is no barrier for admission to universities connected to the exams. Everything is very clearly spelled out. On the contrary, we have eased the childrens task. The ticket-based final certification on the material studied over the 11 years at school will be passed within the walls of school. There will not be rush for admission. New UNT format is an opportunity to compete for a grant to any student, so the conditions for all will be equal, E.Sukhanberdiyeva said.

The final certification of 2017 graduates is proposed to be held in accordance with a new system, which will now exist in the form of final examination in schools and the UNT as the entrance exams to universities.

At the Government meeting the Prime Minister noted that the high-level preparatory works should be carried out from now on.
