External Independent Evaluation (EIT) will not be canceled in Ukraine this year, as there are no grounds to do it. Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal announced this at today's session of the Ukrainian government. The broadcast was provided by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"Currently, there is no reason for not holding it. The external evaluation will take place according to a certain plan. The betrayal has been canceled, there will be no return of corruption to universities by abolishing the external evaluation," Shmygal said.
He said that the government, for its part, would do everything to make the admission campaign comfortable and safe for entrants.
As we reported earlier, today, on June 17, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has submitted a draft bill that offers to cancel the school-leaving examination in 2020.
The reason is the ongoing quarantine measures, which are supposed to relieve the 11th-grade students from state-run school-leaving examinations this year.
Nevertheless, students still have an opportunity to request a state-run school-leaving examination, including the option of external independent evaluation.
