High School Final Exam System Set for Autumn Overhaul ({{commentsTotal}})


The class of 2014 will face a new final examination system, with a more limited choice of subjects.

The current system is that students take an Estonian language exam and then choose four more state exams. Instead, they will have to take three mandatory exams - Estonian language, math and one foreign language, ERR radio reported today.

Students will have a choice of two math exams, either a general exam or one specific field.

All students will have to pick one foreign language from English, German, Russian or French, with those who pass receive an international B2 certificate.

The first exam will take place on April 23.

Besides the three mandatory state exams, all graduates will also have to pass a school exam, individual to each school, and submit a research paper or project.
