Ljubljana – Approximately 42,000 6th and 9th grade elementary school students write Slovenian tests as more than 6,000 final grade high school students sweat their essays in their native language and a national exam takes place on Wednesday. .. For the first time in two years, the exam will be lifted from the Covid-19 restrictions.
National primary school exams are of a more or less informative nature and give them, their parents, and school authorities an assessment of their skills. Matura Secondary School graduation qualifications, on the other hand, serve as a pass for students to enroll in a university course of their choice.
For academic-oriented students rather than vocational students, Matura begins with an essay in Slovenian, or in each language for a minority of Italian and Hungarian students. This year’s theme is the world of charm and misery of Andrey Hien’s novel Miraculous Phoenix and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby.
The second part of the exam in the student’s native language, this time focusing on grammar, will take place on May 30th. Students will also write an essay in a foreign language, take the math exam and selected subjects by June 15th, and take the oral exam between June 13th and 22nd. Learn how well they did on July 11th.
Students who cannot take the exam due to health reasons such as Covid-19 infection can take the exam in the fall, but unlike students, they are counted as if they took the exam in the spring. Those who will retake the exam in the fall.
This year’s Matura Student Cohort features a Covid-19 pandemic with face masks, social distance, Covid-19 pass rules, self-diagnosis, and distance learning on and off for three out of four years.
Nova Gorica Secondary School student Nastja Orel says she lost a lot of class time due to quarantine and self-isolation, but still has the opportunity to spend most of her final year in the classroom and properly prepare for Matura.
“We believe that even if teachers seem to be worried because they are positive and haven’t tested their knowledge well, we believe Matura will work,” Orel said, leaving students focused and focused. He added that there are more problems to maintain. Remote lessons and social distance have affected the mental health of many.
The General Matura Exam was taken for the first time by 6,105 students from 83 schools. Last year, 84-87% passed the first exam and 86-89% took both exam dates into account. Today, a total of 6,337 candidates have applied for the essay.
On the other hand, 22,630 elementary school students in the sixth grade and 19,663 elementary school students in the final grade take the national examination.
