– What security conditions will be provided during testing?
– What are the opportunities for prospective students who are currently abroad or in temporarily occupied territories?

Why this is interesting:
2024 is shaping out to be the third year when, due to the full-scale invasion, Ukraine cannot hold the full-fledged External Independent Test for prospective students.
The Ukrainian Center for Educational Quality Assessment has already worked out how to hold the National Multi-Subject Test. Certain changes are expected in 2024.
