MOSCOW, August 30 (Itar-Tass) —— More than 2% of high school graduates failed the unified state exam this year, which is less than in the previous years, head of the Federal Education Supervisory Service Lyubov Glebova said on Tuesday.
“A total of 2.1% of high school graduates (52,500 people) failed the unified state exam,” she said. “The indicator was 2.3% in 2010 and 3% in 2009.”
More than 2.6 schoolchildren took the exam this year, which was 11.8% less than the year before, Glebova said.
