2020 entry campaign: the Ministry of Education has two UPE scenarios
The Ministry of Education and Science has developed two scenarios for an independent external evaluation this year.
That’s what Deputy Minister of Education and Science Yegor Stadny said during a live broadcast on the Facebook page of the Ministry of Education and Science, reports a correspondent for Ukrinform.
“We have indicated that we have two scenarios for conducting an independent external evaluation. And depending on when we conduct the UPR, all subsequent stages of the entry campaign will be deployed sequentially … If we complete the restrictive measures that we are not allowed to perform the UPR, now if we complete these restrictive measures in early June, the UPR will take place from June 25 to July 17. As a result, the introductory campaign is also running sequentially and, in this option, registration of candidates’ electronic desktops begins on August 1, ”noted Stadny.
At the same time, he noted, the possibility is envisaged that the restrictive measures will be lifted before the beginning of August and that the UPR will be implemented from August 17 to September 4. In this case, the registration of candidates’ electronic offices through which candidates will submit their applications will start on September 25.

He added that “the vast majority of candidates, and this year even more so, because the electronic submission of judicial applications will be organized, will submit electronic applications, there will be no need to go anywhere”.
