MOSCOW, February 18 (Itar-Tass) —— The Unified State Exam system gives more opportunities to schoolchildren but needs further improvement, presidential chief of staff Sergei Ivanov said.
“The USE system has created much broader opportunities for obtaining education in prestigious higher educational institutions for school graduated in all Russian regions,” Ivanov said at a meeting of the Board of the Ministry of Education and Science on Saturday, February 18.
“This has changed the situation completely as only school graduates in Moscow and St. Petersburg could enroll in renowned universities in the past,” he said.
Ivanov stressed, “This work is now underway at the ministry and the presidential administration, and we will certainly continue it.”
According to Ivanov, it is necessary to start with a transition from accreditation of higher educational institutions to accreditation of their educational programmes.
“Another important task today is to create a modern national system for finding young talented people,” he said.
Ivanov believes that this system should be based on the existing network of educational institutions but should also include new ones, such as institutions offering additional education.
