Final Examinations in the Russian Ten-Year School.
Apanasewicz, Nellie; Rosen, Seymour M.
In May and June of each year, Soviet students who have completed grades one through ten face a final examination in each of the major subjects which they have studied. The examinations are constructed by the ministries of education in the Soviet republics and are submitted to the individual school district authorities. The type, form, and purpose of the examination are relatively constant each year. The examinations are aimed at verifying the amount of knowledge acquired by the students upon completion of their secondary education, and reflect an effort to have students master a prescribed amount of knowledge from textbooks, other required readings, and practical work. Each pupil selects a card bearing the questions he or she will answer; the student must provide the answers orally, and when appropriate, on the blackboard. Answers are judged by a committee composed of the school director, teachers, and an official from the local district education department. This booklet provides an outline of the course content covered by the 1964 examinations in algebra, geometry, physics, chemistry, history of the USSR and social sciences, and foreign languages (English, German, and French).
