At the same time, he stressed that if the situation with the coronavirus is critical, then the decision will be made in favor of the students who pass the Unified and Basic State Exams (USE and OGE).

In addition, Muzaev announced the launch of the navigator for 9th and 11th grade students. It will contain “many additional and useful tricks so that graduates do not spend a lot of time looking for the right” simulators “.” The service is scheduled to launch in December.
