YEREVAN. – A group of applicants who were not accepted to Armenia’s universities and their parents are meeting with MPs in the National Assembly (NA) Wednesday to discuss the issue of the applicants who were not accepted to the country’s institutions of higher education.
NA majority My Step faction member Lilit Stepanyan, and opposition Bright Armenia faction member Anna Kostanyan are participating in this discussion.
To note, the applicants who were not accepted to Armenia’s universities and their parents are protesting, complaining about the results of the university entrance exams and the new approach of the education department. Accordingly, numerous applicants with lower scores were accepted to universities, whereas many applicants with higher scores were not accepted, as the applicants’ selected profession was underscored this year, and therefore priority was given to those who selected a given profession as their first choice, rather than to those with high scores in any subject.
