Today the direct stage of centralized testing at 37 testing points has started in the country from the academic subject “Belarusian language”. 17900 applicants have registered to test their knowledge on this subject.

This year, the introductory campaign is being held under new rules. As a reminder, in June the Government amended the Regulation on the procedure for organizing and conducting centralized testing. There is also a ban on making changes to the answer form after the end of the time allotted for the test.

Deputy Prime Minister Igor Petrishenko gave wishes and parting words to applicants: “CT is a kind of competition that must be fair. And this is a test for stress resistance. " He wished all applicants success, composure and honesty, first of all, in front of himself when performing tests.

Special attention this year is to security measures. The distribution of the largest number of applicants in the two most demanded academic subjects for 2 days each is provided.

In addition, electronic registration of Belarusian and foreign citizens for centralized testing and an electronic queue for obtaining passes for centralized testing have been introduced.

The seating of the participants of the central heating system is ensured from a distance between them of at least 1 meter.

As for the centralized testing points, they are fully equipped with disinfectants, access for applicants to purchase masks, ventilation and additional cleaning of the premises is organized. To prevent the accumulation of applicants, it is envisaged that they enter the auditorium of the central heating immediately upon arrival at the testing point without additional waiting. At the testing points, medical workers will be on duty, who, if necessary, will be able to make a decision not to allow persons with obvious signs of illness to participate in the entrance tests.

The number of testing points on the reserve day has also been increased. And if a CT participant is in self-isolation, it is possible to submit documents for registration of an applicant for passing the CT on reserve days by his legal representative, with the provision of a copy of the applicant's passport.

Recall that centralized testing will last until July 8.

The issuance of certificates for centralized testing this year will be carried out from July 16 with the obligatory presentation of a certificate of education. This norm will allow minimizing the participation in DH of other persons who are not oriented towards admission to educational institutions in the current year.
