Despite the pandemic and distance learning of schoolchildren, the final exams at the end of secondary school this year in Latvia have not yet been canceled, and at the moment it is planned that they will be held in person, said Liene Berzina, a representative of the State Center for Educational Content.

Like last year, this year students will take three compulsory exams, but the fourth, optional, will not be compulsory. This also applies to the students of vocational education institutions, who will pass exams related to obtaining vocational qualifications this year.

The exams, as in the last academic year, are planned to be held in person, in compliance with all the requirements of epidemiological safety.

In cooperation with the Ministry of Health, recommendations will be prepared on the organization and conduct of face-to-face consultations and state examinations for 12th grade students and vocational schools.

At the same time, it was decided to cancel the test work for 9th grade graduates: they will graduate from basic school with annual grades. In order to assess the knowledge of students, they will conduct diagnostic work that will not affect the grades for the year or semester.
