Is LGS Exam Deferred?
Minister of National Education Ziya Selçuk answered questions about the education agenda in her live broadcast, which she attended remotely. Selçuk, who shared the measures taken due to the epidemic in the central examination to be held within the scope of the Transition to High Schools on June 20, said, “There were 3 thousand 873 schools in LGS that we tested last year. The number of schools tested this year was 18 thousand 139. It increased more than five times. Thus, social distance rules can be easily followed. ” he spoke.
National Education Minister Ziya Selcuk, maintaining distance education at the planned 2020-2021 academic year in September to begin or answer the question as to whether said of the postponement of the date of Selcuk, day in and world situations Turkey day, drew attention to vary from week to week.
For this reason, Selçuk reminded that they constantly update their decisions in line with the recommendations of the Scientific Board and the data announced by the Ministry of Health, and reminded that compensatory training will start on August 31 and last at least 3 weeks.
Expressing that it is planned to open schools immediately after compensatory education, Selçuk stated that due to the Kovid-19 process, it is not right to give a clear date and the process may change according to the announced data.
Selcuk said that it is not easy to answer today on the question “If there is an increase in the number of cases or if the epidemic continues, the education year will not be opened in September or distance education will be permanent”.
“Is compensatory education an obligatory application?” Answering the question, Selçuk underlined that August 15, which is determined for compensatory education for private schools, is not a mandatory start date.
Emphasizing that this has been determined as the date when compensatory education for private schools can start at the earliest, Selçuk said, “If it wishes, a private education institution can start it on August 31 or start it earlier. The important thing is to offer some options in this regard. ” said.
Minister Selçuk explained that they will share more detailed information about the technical details of compensatory education in the coming period, and emphasized that parents should not have to worry about this issue.
"Should the students not participate in make-up education if parents do not want?" Selçuk said on the question: “In such a situation, we do not create an environment by forcing our parents or by suggesting some conditions. What is expected from us is to provide some environments for our parents who want to complete the deficiencies that children need and take additional measures. For example, we also prepare supportive training courses. Outside of school hours, if our children want extra compensation or support, we will also have support and upbringing courses, which are not compulsory. Compensatory education is an education other than normal education. In other words, there may be some rules besides the rules of normal education. It can be more flexible. ”
What kind of a message would you like to send from the parents who study the children at a private school to those who find it early in August for face-to-face education or worry about the opening date of the schools? ” Answering the question, Selçuk said, “Our parents, of course, monitor and observe the situation of their children. When this kind of thing happens, there is no question that private schools will all start on a certain date. If there is a guardian who does not want, does not consider it necessary, they may of course consider other options related to this. In other words, there is no such thing as a date for private schools. In other words, in the process, we will have the opportunity to make some explanations where our parents can feel comfortable and make different decisions about their holidays. ” spoke in the form.

In other words, there is no problem since the student will be enrolled in those schools, whether it is a difficult question or an easy question. The difficulty or ease of the questions are technical issue for us and we do the difficulty, difficulty level of the questions by using some statistical formulas. For this reason, there is not even an option to ask too hard this year, or ask very easily next year. There are only questions that have been prepared taking into account a certain degree of difficulty. Therefore, if the questions are very difficult, the quota of the schools that accept students by exam will not be empty. ”

We have taken all kinds of precautions regarding this. ” made the explanation.
Upon asking whether the application of children diagnosed with Kovid-19 for the central exam under LGS is available, Selçuk gave the following information: “There is a change about this number, there is no clear number at the moment, but we have created and prepared our schools in terms of readiness.

It's the same for our supervisor friends. ”
