MOSCOW, June 5 (Itar-Tass) — Approximately 13% of Russian high school graduates got Ds in the unified state history exam this year, which was almost 3% more than in 2011 (9.4%), the Federal Consumer Rights and Healthcare Service said on Tuesday.
A total of 8.2% failed the unified state biology exam, and 11.1% the unified state IT exam. The indicators stood at 7.1% and 9.8% correspondingly last year.
It will be possible to take the exams again next year only, but graduation certificates will be issued to the students just the same, the service said.
The minimal score was set at 32 points in the history exam, 36 points in the biology exam and 40 points in the IT exam.
A total of 195 students had the top score (100 points) in the history exam, 51 in the biology exam and 315 in the IT exam.
About 153,000 students took the biology exam, 141,000 the history exam and 57,000 the IT exams. The exams took place on May 28, and 100% of the works were checked. Students will be notified of their scores within three days.
The service said it would double-check high-score biology works in Ingushetia and high-score biology works in Kalmykia and Mordovia.
There will be selective double-checks of works in the Lipetsk and Bryansk regions, Kalmykia, Dagestan, Adygeya and Kabardino-Balkaria.
