On Tuesday, the exams begin in Varna. 380 Ukrainian youth will take the online matriculation exam at the University of Economics. The test there is in two shifts - from 10 am and from 3 pm Kyiv time on July 27, 28 and 29 and on August 2 and 3. On August 1 and 2, those who signed up for Sofia - 168 people - will hold their matriculation exams. They will use the base of the Technical University.

"As an embassy, ​​we are very grateful to the Ministry of Education and Science of Bulgaria and to these two universities, they very kindly help, they are open, we appreciate that. Bulgaria was one of the first countries that agreed to organize exams on its territory," commented Irina Kozik to OFFNews.

Because of the war, this year's matriculation exams were delayed, and for the areas under occupation and because of the students who went abroad, a different knowledge testing organization was created. For the first time this year, the matriculation exams will be in the form of one common exam - the National Multi-Subject Test (NMT).

Within 120 minutes, high school graduates will answer questions on the Ukrainian language, mathematics and the history of Ukraine. The test contains 60 questions, 20 from each area, and their content corresponds to the compulsory curriculum. Open answers are not provided even in the block with questions in the Ukrainian language.

The results of each block will be evaluated in points from 100 to 200. The NMT will also be an entrance exam for entering a university. Depending on the specialty for which the applicant is applying, the different blocks will have different weights for admission. Decisive for the engineering majors will be the math prom, and for the humanitarian majors - the history of Ukraine. The main session of the National Multi-Subject Test started on July 18 and will continue until August 10, and overseas exams have been organized in 39 cities in 20 countries.
