SOCIALISTS CALL FOR SIMPLIFIED SECONDARY SCHOOL LEAVING EXAMS

 

The opposition Socialists have called for simplified school leaving exams, in view of the school closures due to the coronavirus outbreak. István Hiller, deputy speaker of parliament and former education minister, asked the government at an online press conference to assess the educational and logistic aspects of reducing the exams to either oral or written tests. This academic year and the simplified exams should be accepted as fully equivalent to those completed under normal circumstances, Hiller said.
Hiller noted that foregoing the exams altogether could also be an option should the epidemic explode in a way that even small gatherings would endanger the participants’ health.
