Update from the Louth Meath Education & Training Board:
The Ukrainian authorities have confirmed that this year the final schooling examination – known as the “Matura”, has been cancelled.
Students from Ukraine will be given school-leaving certificates based on their academic status achieved during the 1st semester of the current school year and the 2nd semester if this is available. The procedures of receipt of school-leaving certificates are being worked through by the Ukrainian authorities.
We also have been advised that university entrance exams for Ukraine will take place online. The Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science is liaising closing with the Irish Universities’ Association (IUA) to support Ukrainian young people here in Ireland who wish to sit this exam.
The Ukrainian Ministry of Education has directed students seeking information about the format of the examination to this website: https://testportal.gov.ua/vstupni-na-bakalavrat/
