MOSCOW, February 18 (Itar-Tass) —— A unified state exam for bachelors of art is likely to be introduced as an experiment in the next two to three years, Minister of Education and Science Andrei Fursenko said.
Fursenko put forth the proposal at a meeting of the ministry board on Saturday, February 18.
In his opinion, “It should be a serious written exam to be graded by experts who have no relation to the university where the BA studied.”
“Such independent assessment should also involve employers and should be separated from those who taught these guys,” he added.
“As an experiment, a unified state exam for bachelors of art should appear in 2-3 years,” Fursenko said.
He is convinced that “the idea of an independent exam for those who have completed a BA programme is correct and will be realised.”
