The Director of the National Assessment and Examinations Center thanked the administrators and coordinators of the examination centers for organizing the examinations and the work done in the past years. She wished each of them success in this year’s exams:

Sophia Gorgodze, the director of the Center

Some of you have been able to do the impossible during the pandemic, these very difficult 2 years – I appreciate it very much and thank you for that. I would especially like to wish success to those who will be an administrator or a coordinator for the first time this year, as they will make a significant contribution to the examination process. We have up to 90 thousand applicants in 2022 – this number is unprecedented in the history of the Center. This time too, our main task is to make each examinee feel that we have created an appropriate, decent exam environment for them after the exams are over. I believe that together we will achieve a common goal.

Sophia Gorgodze, the director of the Center

22 administrators and 22 coordinators are involved in facilitation of the 2022 exams. 22 examination centers have been opened throughout Georgia.

This year’s exams will start on July 4 with the Unified National Examinations.

NAEC’s Open-Door Day in Marneuli

The National Assessment and Examinations Center organized an open-door day for the twelfth graders of Marneuli Municipality schools. Ms. Maia Gabunia, the Head of the Center’s Exam Process Management Service, visited the fifth public school to discuss upcoming Unified National Examinations.

The meeting focused on the examination procedures, registration issues, as well as the recommendations that the examinees should consider both before and during the exams. At the open-door day, the entrants received comprehensive information about the Georgian language training program.

“It was a very informative meeting. It covered all of the hot topics regarding the upcoming exams. I have chosen psychology as my future profession. The closer the exam time is, the more the tension increases and it is very natural. Despite the pandemic, my peers and I have tried hard- we will do our best to reach our goals. My advice for entrants is to worry less and be more confident in themselves.”

The National Assessment and Examinations Center has been hosting open-door days for entrants since December. Due to the pandemic, meetings were held in electronic format. The link was public and accessible to all interested parties. For 6 months, the test takers had the opportunity to attend online meetings every week and get answers regarding the upcoming exams directly from NAEC’s subject experts.
