Schools of national minorities. Better Lithuanian examination scores

Even though this year the Lithuanian language test results for 10th– grade pupils are higher than last year, in case of both Lithuanian and national minorities’ schools, in the latter case, results are lower in comparison to schools where the state language is used as the language of instruction.

According to the National Examination Centre, 22 098 pupils passed the examination, i.e. they got from 4 to 10 points. However, as many as 1 375 pupils got less than 4 points. 

Tasks and the assessment criteria were the same for both schools with Lithuanian as a language of instruction and for schools of national minorities. 

94.3 % of students from Lithuanian schools passed the examination, whereas last year it was 93%. The number of students who gained 9-10 points increased from 12% up to 15.4%.

As far as schools of national minorities are concerned, the results are lower. 90.14% of pupils passed the examination, compared with 89% in 2018.

Moreover, the number of pupils who scored 9 or 10 points also increased from 4.2% to 7.12%.
