The main fear of graduates and their parents in conditions of self-isolation was the quality of preparation for final exams. This follows from a survey conducted by the research company Wanta Group. Research materials are at the disposal of RBC.
The top 5 fears of graduates and their parents included:
- quality of preparation for final exams (42%),
- the risk of not entering the desired educational institution (28%),
- postponement of final exams (22%),
- difficulties finding a job after graduation (21%)
- transfer of entrance tests to universities and colleges (18%).
81% of respondents believe that self-isolation prevents graduates from preparing for exams. The reason for this, first of all, was the quality of the remote platforms that students offer. Only 23% of parents and graduates stated that they highly appreciate the quality of the distance educational platform that is offered at the educational institution.
At the same time, young people rely more on the opportunity to prepare for exams in conditions of self-isolation and transfer of exam dates. 70% of respondents aged 18 to 24 believe that postponing final exams will give schoolchildren the opportunity to prepare better. Among respondents aged 45 and older, only 51% share this opinion.
