The Hungarian government has no plans to change the rules or dates related to school-leaving exams scheduled from mid-May to June.
Zoltán Maruzsa, State Secretary for Public Education, said the government expects both written and oral exams to take place in the usual manner, with a deadline for applications for school-leaving exams and university admissions of Feb. 15,
Last year, some 80,000 students sat for their school-leaving exams in the spring and an additional 30,000 in the autumn, Maruzsa said, adding that this showed that the exams could be organized safely, even during a pandemic. No infection hotspots emerged as a result, he added.
