MOSCOW, January 18, /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian government has approved a list of five universities that will have the right to administer additional entrance examinations in subjects of their specialization.
On the list are Moscow State Law University, Moscow State Pedagogical University, Higher School of Economics, Moscow State Linguistic University and Nizhny Novgorod State Linguistic University.
Additional entrance examinations in certain subjects will be given to select best candidates for admission. The universities have a great number of applicants with high Unified State Examination results, and it is difficult to select them only on the basis of state test results.
In 2011, eight universities were allowed administering additional examinations in ten specialization fields. In 2012, there were six such universities, and last year, the number was reduced to five.
Traditionally, Moscow's Lomonosov State University and St. Petersburg's State University conduct additional exams.
