About 8 thousand entrants have taken part in the free-of-charge trial testing organized by the staff of Zaporizhzhya National University. By the results of testing in ZNU, 80 percent of senior pupils have shown sufficient level of knowledge for entrance in higher educational institutions, having typed more than 124 points.
Let's remind, that during January - February at Zaporizhzhya National University free-of-charge trial testings in all disciplines which were submitted to EIR-2009 were spent. During the press conference, devoted to the analysis of the results of carrying out of trainings, the Rector of ZNU professor Sergy Tymchenko noted, good results were shown by those who taken part in testings in natural sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geography). A plenty participants got more than 180 points. Also high results were shown by participants of training in History of Ukraine. And on testing in the Ukrainian language and literature which is obligatory for entrance to all specialities, it is necessary to pay attention both to graduates, and their teachers. Tests in foreign languages emphasized differences between the level of knowledge of pupils from specialized and usual schools. Any ratings by results of trial testings were not made, because the only purpose of the trainings is to prepare children to better EIR. Each school and local department of education received the analytical information on the typical mistakes made by graduates.
