On Monday, May 2nd, a test to graduate from a public school called Maturita was started for about 74,000 Czech secondary school students. The exam begins with a written exam in math or English, followed by a written exam in Czech on Tuesday.
Students can also take exams in two additional subjects, including another foreign language and a higher level of math. Oral exams organized by individual schools are scheduled for late May.
This year, only 17% of students said they chose math as an optional subject, and the rest chose English. The Unified School Dropout Exam was first introduced in 2011. The Ministry of Education is planning institutional reforms in the near future, introducing two difficulty levels.
