According to the statement of the Kremlin-controlled "Minister of Education, Science and Youth of the Crimea" Natalia Goncharova, 47% of Crimean graduates decided not to pass the Unified State Exam of neighboring Russia. Goncharova shared the information in the air of the "Sputnik in Crimea" radio on May 24.
“This year the graduates are more serious and more risky, I may say so. Here 53% chose to pass a Unified State Exam. This suggests that, having received certificates, they are absolutely equal with other graduates of the Russian Federation," she noted.
Earlier, this year the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine allocated quotas for the Crimean entrants for state education in educational centers "Crimea - Ukraine".
