The Ministry of Education of Russia has published an order on the specifics of the state final certification (GIA) for educational programs of basic and general secondary education in 2022. The document is posted on the official Internet portal of legal information.
According to the document, the specifics of the GIA also apply to foreign citizens who studied abroad, but were forced to interrupt it due to unfriendly actions of foreign states.
If they are in Russia and master accredited programs of basic and secondary general education and are enrolled in educational organizations, then they have the right to choose to pass certification under the programs of basic general (GIA-9) and secondary general education (GIA-11) in the established forms. For them, GIA-9 and GIA-11 are held in the form of the Basic State Exam (OGE) or the Unified State Exam (USE), respectively, the State Final Exam (GVE) – in the form established by the Department of Education (OIV) of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, or in form of intermediate certification.
If foreign citizens who interrupted their studies abroad are in foreign countries and master accredited programs of basic and secondary general education in educational organizations operating in Russia, or study at home or remotely, then they pass GIA-9 and GIA-11 in the form of an intermediate certification.
Those who did not pass the GIA or received unsatisfactory results on it, including repeatedly, can pass it in the form of an intermediate certification.
