7,086 students will take Friday's math state exam. This will conclude the exam period for a hectic school year for high school graduates.
Students had an option to choose between a narrow or extended version of the exam. Nearly 2,600 students opted for the narrow exam and close to 4,500 chose the extended, more difficult exam.
As state exams are voluntary this school year, passing them is not a requirement for graduation. Close to 20 percent of students who registered for the exam by January 20, opted out of the exam entirely.
Exams are graded on a 0-100 scale and every student is graded equally. Only a single point is needed to pass state exams in Estonia, educational body Innove Foundation announced.
As the exam will not have a re-take option, it will finish the exam period for most students. The period to take a Cambridge C1 Advanced exam is open for students from June 12 to June 22.
Goethe-Zertifikat B1 and B2 exams are available for students on June 8 - June 11. French and Russian exams are currently planned for August.
A total of 9,861 students will take state exams in Estonia this year, with 8,352 of them graduating high school, 965 graduating vocational schools. 544 of exam takers have previously graduated high school.
Exam results will be announced on June 30 in the portals of EIS and www.eesti.ee. Students will be issued their digital examination certificates on July 1, at the latest.
