High school students sat their foreign language exams today! Many High school graduate hopefuls were excited for their first Matura exam, which happened to be the English language exam.
Those participating in the exam were welcomed two hours prior to its commencement to be subjected to strict security controls.
36 thousand high school graduate hopefuls, including those who were not successful last year, commenced the exam at 10 o’clock this morning.
This year's exam included 20 multiple choice questions worth 60 points, which will be corrected electronically.
Whilst the hopeful high school graduates were quite relaxed, their parents were experiencing strong emotions.
When asked, the students evaluated the exam as being of an average difficulty, though they say the exam took place under strict conditions.
To ensure the exam was conducted safely and successfully, 560 police officers were engaged in today's processes.
