School graduation exams in the new academic year in Belarus will not change. This decision was made at the annual board of the Ministry of Education. A single independent exam was suggested last year, but for now school graduates will not be taking it. As before, ninth graders will face three compulsory exams, those graduating after 11 years of school will take 4 of them. School students who studied in Lithuanian and Polish will additionally take exams in those subjects, too.
