Students don't know geography.
Unsatisfactory grades in the unified state exams (USE) in literature received 6.5% of school graduates, in geography - 10.1%, the press service of Rosobrnadzor said. On June 1, about 33 thousand people passed exams in geography, 48 thousand people in literature.
Retake the exam in these subjects is possible only next year, according to Rosobrnadzor. The highest result - 100 points - was received by 234 people from 60 regions of the Russian Federation in literature, in geography - 20 people from 13 regions.
As of June 7, about 96% of the work on each of these subjects has been processed, RIA Novosti notes. The data may be slightly adjusted after processing 100% of the work. Rosobrnadzor decided to double-check in a number of regions some of the work, the results of which are questionable. Failure to overcome the minimum threshold in literature and geography does not affect the receipt of a certificate.
Positive results of these exams will be included in the certificate of USE results, as they may be needed by those who wish to continue their studies, including in higher educational institutions.
