MoESYS: On the Irrelevance of “cutting” but unverified facts expressed by OPORA

The process of being admitted to study in an establishment of higher education (HEI) is the final and most crucial stage of the nationwide process of selecting the most gifted young people; it is a contest where young people battle to achieve the honor of being called students. It would appear that everything is being done to ensure the transparency of this process—independent testing, renewing the Konkurs electronic system, creating an operational headquarters and a MoESYS consultation hot line that act quickly on concerns expressed by citizens that relate to the admission process, including community organizations as observers of the process, etc. Before and during the admission campaign, Ministry staff ran informational campaigns in the media to familiarize the public with this year’s rules of entry, and with the rights and obligations of applicants, etc. Over 15 informational letters put out by the Ministry attest to the extremely stressful daily, even hourly work load of everyone at the MoESYS’s campaign headquarters—from the Minister, to the leading experts. The letters addressed problems associated with the admission campaign, and numerous operational violations hot line attendants were made aware of when listening to callers. Every report was taken serious because every HEI applicant is a unique individual whose rights cannot be violated.  read more
