In Uzbekistan, entrance exams to universities will be held at the open central stadiums of Tashkent and regional centers.
Taking into account the fact that closed premises do not meet epidemiological requirements and do not have sufficient capacity to conduct exams at the optimal time, while maintaining social distance, an order was given to organize test trials in the central stadiums of Tashkent and the regions.
In this case, exams will be held 2 times a day (during cool hours of the day). The entire testing process is planned to be completed approximately in 12-14 days.
This was announced at a meeting chaired by President Shavkat Mirziyayev on the organization of admission to higher educational institutions and preparation for the 2020/2021 academic year.
According to the press service of the head of state, the responsible ministries and departments were instructed to carefully prepare the stadiums for testing, informing applicants about their location.
Mirziyoyev stressed that it is necessary to determine the time of the examinations based on the conclusion of the Ministry of Health and the Sanitary and Epidemiological Service on the epidemiological situation, to ensure the safety of public health.
It is noted that the State Commission for Admission to Educational Institutions, khokimiyats, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the National Guard, the Ministry of Physical Culture and Sports, the State Security Service will take all necessary measures to ensure the transparency of test tests and prevent red tape of applicants.
It is noted that this year 91 higher educational institutions accepted documents for admission to bachelor’s degree from 1 million 484 thousand applicants, which is 39% more than last year. 10.6 people apply for one student place.
This year, 162 thousand 364 places in the bachelor’s degree and 10425 places in the magistracy have been allocated for study at the country’s universities.
