High school lasts 2 years – in grades 10 and 11.
According to the New Ukrainian School reform schedule, the launch of the senior specialized school falls on 2027. Students will receive specialized secondary education for 3 years: from grades 10 to 12, in academically or vocationally oriented lyceums, which should be separate institutions with accommodation, transportation of students, etc.
At the end of the 11th grade, students pass the state final examination in the form of an external independent assessment (hereinafter referred to as the EIA). EIA also serves as a tool for transparent admission to higher education institutions. The organization and conduct of EIA are provided by the state institution “Ukrainian Center for Assessing the Quality of Education” (hereinafter referred to as the UCAQE), which reports to the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. The tasks of certification works are secret from their creation until the very moment of testing.
EIA scores are determined on two scales:
Due to the coronavirus disease pandemic, final state examination could be taken at educational institutions, and only those planning to enter higher education could pass EIA.
In 2022, due to the war of russia against Ukraine, school leavers were exempt from passing the state final examination. And for admission to the Bachelor’s degree program, instead of the traditional EIA, it is planned to conduct a national multi-subject test (NMT) in a computer format.
According to the UCAQE, this exam will be conducted face-to-face in special temporary examination centers. These are classrooms of schools and universities, where computer classes will be created and instructors will work.
NMT will contain three task blocks:
The total number of tasks in the national multi-subject test is 60, which will take 90 minutes to complete.
