Baku. Ilhama Isabalayeva – APA. Hotline has been set up in the higher schools of Azerbaijan in connection with winter session, APA reports. Education Minister Misir Mardanov said every appeal would be reacted and relevant measures would be taken.
The minister took a stance on the proposal to admit winners of the world subject Olympiad to higher schools without taking exams. Mardanov said the point was exaggerated and regretted that it was seriously discussed by some parliamentarians.
The minister said about 30,000 entrants became students in Azerbaijan every year. Only 10-15 talented young people win world subject Olympiad. Misir Mardanov considers that as few Azerbaijanis win the world subject Olympiad and they perfectly demonstrate their knowledge, they can be admitted to the higher schools without taking exams.
The minister said the world’s famous higher schools created conditions for the young people from Azerbaijan to continue their education.
