National Secondary School Leaving Examination
In the 2009/2010 school year, the national secondary school leaving examination was carried out for the first time as well as online applications for study at higher education institutions via the National information system for applications to higher education institution.
Thanks to the national secondary school leaving examination and the NISpVU system, secondary school leavers were enabled to carry out all activities concerning their enrolment at institutions of high education in their own school – from expressing interest in studying at the selected schools, taking the national secondary school leaving examination (as a replacement for entrance exams), to the enrolment procedure itself.
The system allows students a quick and direct review of the results they achieved at the national secondary school leaving examination, a detailed calculation of the score for each registered degree program according to the rules prescribed by the institutions of high education, as well as a review of their rank on the lists of each degree program they expressed an interest in.
The project of the establishment of the national secondary school leaving examination and online enrolment system was started by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports, with the participation of the project partners – the National Centre for the External Evaluation of Education, the Agency for Science and Higher Education and CARNET. CARNET’s role was to provide technical and customer support, which it continues to do for the project to this day.
