Competition of certificates began with the middle of July at national universities among entrants following the results of independent external testing.
Not fight for a place among entrants, and fight for entrants became one of the main problems of this year. Places in a higher educational institution this year it is much bigger, than graduates.
- Every year the number of graduates decreases. In 2008 of school let out 1700 people less, than last year, - the head of department of science and education of the Nikolaev regional public administration Valery Melnichenko claims. - If this tendency remains, in four years schools will have nobody to let out.
As usual graduates filed documents to some higher education institutions, and now a burning issue rectors don't see, but that will be by August when a receipt issue already to be resolved. Don't undertake to predict results of competition of certificates yet.
In regional profile management level of the knowledge shown by pupils of the Nikolaev schools, highly appreciate enough. Only 10% of pupils didn't pass independent external test, without having gathered as a result of 124 points. According to Valery Melnichenko the Nikolaev school students are best of all prepared in mathematics. While across Ukraine the percent of negative estimates on this subject averaged 4,5, in Nikolaev it is 0,2% lower. The worst indicator in Nikolaev on geography - 16%.
