The finalists of the National School Olympiad 2021-2022 have shared views and pieces of advice to their peers and future participants.

“I made up my mind to participate in the Olympiad to demonstrate my mathematical abilities. The process went very smoothly, we took the tests in a peaceful and quiet environment which met all of the Covid-19 regulations. This is not my first time participating in the Olympiads, but this is my first time in the finals. This is very uplifting for me because even getting to the finals means a lot. I definitely urge my fellow students to try. “

Ia Goglidze

“Winning the National School Olympiad gives us a “golden ticket” to the International Olympiads. The Georgian team is formed by the winners at the national level – this is an extraordinary opportunity that we should all use. This type of contests increase healthy competition among students, develop a desire to be better, to achieve better results both at a school level and across the country. This is my second time participating. If I get another chance, I will get involved in the future. I would like to say to those who are considering to participate in the next National School Olympiad: nothing is impossible or even difficult if you set your mind to it.”

Zaza Elizbarashvili

“I took part in the National School Olympiad to test out my abilities. The testing process during all three rounds have been administered efficiently and I am personally very grateful to the NAEC’s team of professionals. I’d like to encourage other students to explore and review the resources carefully, try their best and believe in themselves.

Giorgi Japaridze

“As you know, the winner of the German Language Olympiad will travel to Hamburg to participate in the International Olympiad. Of course, winning and going there is my great desire, however I am participating for the first time this year and the fact that I am in the third round is already a great success for me. Reviewing the last year’s sample tests published at naec.ge helped me a lot in preparation. I advise everyone to try, this experience will surely be useful for further development.”

Nutsa Kakhaia

“I am in the tenth grade; therefore, this is my first National School Olympiad. I am taking a German language test – today is the third round. My main motivation for participating was to gain new experience.

Participation in the Olympiads will be especially useful for those students who plan to continue their studies abroad. I think it improves the ability to learn, get used to exams and network with other children. There’s no need for special preparation for the Olympiad – it is not necessary at all. I followed the school curriculum. The main thing is to trust yourself and write with confidence. “

Mariam Burduli

“I am satisfied with my results so far. I want to continue my studies abroad and it will be a kind of a preparation for future exams, both psychologically and practically. My advice to students is to take part in similar competitions, try and never be afraid to test themselves. “

The 2021 Unified National Examinations have concluded today (30.08.2021). 29,362 entrants have enrolled in various universities throughout the country.

Dr. Sophia Gorgodze, the Director of the National Assessment and Examinations Center

It is my honor to congratulate each and every of them and wish an exciting, successful and productive student life. I would also like to kindly remind them that from the next week they should contact the higher education institutions for administrative purposes to finalize the enrolment procedure.

In 2021, 76% of registered applicants became students. This percentage is almost the same as the last year (75%). Despite the challenges caused by the pandemic, the number of enrolments has not decreased. As for the state funding, a total of 10,769 entrants were funded, of which 6,545 entrants received a state grant: 1,011 entrants received a 100% grant, 1,454% received a 70% grant, and 4,080 entrants received a 50% grant. 4,224 entrants will continue their studies at the state-funded faculties.

As for the competition for different programs, Law, Business Administration, Psychology and Healthcare are in the lead like in previous years. This year, a different trend was also revealed. Popular areas now also include graphic design, performing arts, veterinary medical studies, and computer science. The number of enrollees in the Georgian language foundation program has increased, where representatives of ethnic minorities first master the Georgian language and then continue to study in a specific direction. Compared to the last year, this year about 300 entrants gained the right to continue their studies in these programs.

The examination process in 2021 was the longest due to the pandemic, as every applicant who was absent at the exam with a diagnosis of Covid-19 had an opportunity to be involved in the process after recovery. Despite the prolonged examination process, the National Assessment and Examinations Center did everything possible to ensure that the final announcement of the results was not delayed, which would prevent starting university studies on time.

This year has once again shown us how responsible and civic-minded was each participant in the exams. Due to such attitude and devoted staff the examinations were conducted completely safely amid pandemic. I would like to express my special thanks to each team member of the NAEC. I would also like to sincerely extend my gratitude towards all the agencies that helped us in the process of conducting the exams for a month and a half. The outstanding support of each counterpart was significant to help us overcome the difficulties caused by the pandemic.
