Rectors of Leading Russian Universities Commenting on the Results of University Admissions-2012
The discussion took place on the pages of “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”. In 2012, 775 thousand high school students received their diplomas and competed for 290 budget university spots. The minimum passing score has been a record this year. The most popular RSUH programs are law, design and linguistics. Rector Pivovar noted that this year the students were more responsible in choosing their prospective majors than last year when many applicants had gone for as many as three unrelated speciaoization options.
