Georgia’s Armenian and Azerbaijani would-be-students will have to pass only one exam in their native language during the Unified National Exams, Education Minister Nika Gvaramia said at the government’s session on October 9.
“The Armenian and Azerbaijani language population will pass only one exam in general skills. They will not participate in a common competition and they will receive separate funding. We decided to allocate separate places for these people to avoid unequal competition,” he said.
He also noted that a decision has been made to add the forth, compulsory exam. The would-be-students will have an opportunity to select one among seven subjects.
Prime Minister Nika Gilauri stressed that this decision was a result of “public dialogue.”
