Admission to the presidential schools in Bukhara, Jizzakh, Karshi, Samarkand and Fergana (for fifth to tenth grades) regions, as well as to the Ruzi Choriyev Art School in Surkhandarya region and the Mukhtor Ashrafi Art School in the Bukhara region (for seventh grade) has been postponed.
“As the coronavirus pandemic has not yet been completely eradicated and gatherings are not allowed during examinations, as well as because of the uncertainty regarding the date of a visit of foreign partners –representatives of Cambridge Assessment – to our country, admission of students to presidential schools has been postponed until 2021,” informs the Agency for the Development of Presidential, Creative and Specialized Schools.
In the existing presidential schools in Tashkent, Nukus, Namangan and Khiva, the entrance examinations for the fifth-grade students for the academic year 2020/2021 are postponed to 2021.
According to the government resolution, starting from the 2020/2021 academic year, students are to be admitted to art schools for the 7th grade. Given the current occupancy rate of existing art schools, they have no plans to admit new students in the academic year 2020/2021.
“The information concerning the admission to the specialized schools under the Agency, namely the specialized schools named after Muhammad al-Khorazmiy, Mirzo Ulugbek and Abu Ali ibn Sino will be announced shortly after the consideration and resolution of organizational issues,” the agency added.
