In higher education institution with Olympic flame of

there are three ways to enter to the university, and all of them supplement each other: USE (plus additional tests), All-Russian Olympic Games of school students and (separately!) Olympic Games of school students. It is important not to confuse the second and third.

Panacea from USE

Until recently annually there took place several hundreds of the most various Olympic Games. In June, 2007 the Russian council of the Olympic Games of school students was founded (the chairman - V. A. Sadovnichiy). One of its central tasks - to define the limited list of the Olympic Games which really would promote disclosure of outstanding abilities of participants. In 2008 - 2009 there will be 120 such Olympic Games. The new scheme of the Olympiad movement looks as follows.

the All-Russian Olympic Games of school students exist long ago, take place in four stages on general education disciplines: to mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, Russian etc. It is already debugged system supported by the Ministry of Education and Science. Winners of different stages receive privileges at receipt in higher educational institutions. What - depends on each concrete higher education institution. And rules annually change therefore it is important to find out this question in the chosen higher education institution in advance.

of the Olympic Games of school students - an initiative of high school community. They are carried out also on general education disciplines, and in the whole complexes of objects. For example, on equipment and technologies, social and to the humanities, economy and management, culture and art. What does it give? There are no such objects at school, but the victory in the Olympic Games, say, on natural sciences allows to receive privileges in biology and chemistry. In other words, results of the Olympic Games are counted on entrance tests on specialties where these objects are considered as profile.

It is checked by time

Is considered to be that the students enlisted in higher education institution by results of the Olympic Games - the most talented. Whether they differ from those who arrived in the traditional way?“ Such students, on our supervision, study more honestly than the others, take examinations better. Also you know why? They were definitely not mistaken, having come to us as for a long time wanted to devote themselves to physics, - Vladimir Trukhin, the dean of physical faculty of Lomonosov Moscow State University shares reflections. - And what is standard examinations? These are results of faceless USE plus additional tests. Among arrived in the traditional way there are a lot of those who were mistaken: one the mathematics is actually closer, to others - philology... But among enrolled by results of the specialized Olympic Games such is not present. Conclusion: it is necessary to consider abilities and interests of entrants that all were on the places. For example, in France in some higher education institutions selection lasts the whole three years! It long, but is honest: as a result among students there are no casual people. And at us is in the country of the Olympic Games - still only way to reveal the real talents in different areas“.

of 7 questions of the high school Olympic Games

Who has the right to hold the Olympic Games of school students? One or several federal public authorities, authorities of territorial subjects of the Russian Federation; the state universities and non-state higher education institutions having accreditation; scientific institutions with the assistance of schools, gymnasiums, lyceums - state and commercial (in the presence of accreditation).


When hold 120 Olympic Games of school students? Annually from September 1 to May 15. The Olympic Games include several stages - among them is also correspondence during which remote educational technologies are applied. Important: the final stage of the Olympic Games means participation only in full-time.

How many stages contain the Olympic Games of school students? The Olympic Games are held at four levels: all-Russian, interregional, regional and local. Important: at receipt only winners of the first three levels have privileges. The local stage is considered preparatory to three rest.

Who participates in the Olympic Games? Pupils of general education educational institutions (on a voluntary basis). But only winners and prize-winners of the previous year of the similar Olympic Games in case they continue training at school are allowed to participation in the final stage.

B than a difference between winners and prize-winners of the Olympic Games? Winners are the participants awarded with diplomas of the first degree. Prize-winners are owners of diplomas of the second or third degree. Other participants can be awarded with certificates and diplomas. Important: the number of winners and prize-winners should not exceed 45% of total number of participants of the final stage of the Olympic Games.


to What criteria there have to correspond the Olympic Games which entered number 120? Obligatory signs: existence of the Olympic Games not less than two years; creative nature of tests; easy and free access of school students to participation; free access to information on the Olympic Games (tasks, structure of participants, winners and prize-winners); experience and a financial opportunity to hold similar events.

I question, most important for entrants: what privileges are provided to winners and prize-winners at receipt? Within one year from the moment of the approval of the list of winners and prize-winners depending on Olympic Games level winners and prize-winners have the right (according to the decision of higher education institution) to realize one of three privileges:

Trial year

Everything higher education institutions accept results of the Olympic Games of school students? According to paragraph 19 of the order of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation № 285 “About the statement of the Order of holding the Olympic Games of school students“, winners and prize-winners of the Olympic Games have the right for privileges according to the decision of educational institution. As Nikita Anisimov, the responsible secretary of the Russian council of the Olympic Games of school students told, “theoretically any higher education institution can count results of the Olympic Games at a set of entrants, and it has to be stated in the provision on inclusion in educational institution. Other question that by criteria of the ministry three levels of the Olympic Games which give privileges are allocated, and so far from the ministry explanations concerning the rights of winners of the Olympic Games of different level did not arrive. In the order nothing is told also about differentiation of the state and non-state universities. The non-state higher education institutions which obtained the state accreditation have the right to be organizers of the Olympic Games from the list 120. Respectively, they can count results of the Olympic Games on inclusion at least in the educational institution“.

Of course, winners and prize-winners of the Olympic Games give preference to the well-known higher education institutions with high quality scientific base. Usually they study on internal offices, devoting a lot of time to theoretical immersion and scientifically - research work. Absolutely few prize-winners (and furthermore winners) the Olympic Games come to non-state educational institutions. It is and still important to know what between the state and non-state universities concerning the accounting of results of the Olympic Games on the law of a difference is not present. Privileges are accurately prescribed winners and prize-winners - it is not discounts at paid training, and only privileges at reception.

Having won the Olympic Games in one higher education institution, it is possible to come to another, but again - - if such right is provided by rules of educational institution. For example, the pupil from Astrakhan who won at the Olympic Games on mathematics MSU or the Bauman university can go to study in the Volgograd higher education institution (closer to the house, it is not necessary to go to Moscow and so forth) accepting to itself winners of the Olympic Games of the second level. There are no similar precedents yet as the Olympiad movement in a similar format - the phenomenon new and all system will begin to be rolled only this academic year. But theoretically has to be quite so.

the Thin moments

On the one hand, the more the higher education institution will accept winners of the Olympic Games, the better for higher education institution. On the other hand, there is a danger of injustice. Viktor Sadovnichii in the report “O of activity of the Russian council of the Olympic Games of school students“ about it told:“ The Olympic Games have to have equal conditions and provide equal privileges for all. For example, Lomonosov Moscow State University recognizes winners of the all-Russian Olympic Games on physics and in chemistry. But then this higher education institution is obliged to recognize all all-Russian Olympic Games which are held this year and to enlist any winner from any Olympic Games with privileges. Representatives of many faculties of university are sure that will be more than such exempts, than assumes the plan of reception. It is possible to be greedy to talented children, but it is necessary to commensurate the opportunities with reality all the time“.

“If winners appear

more, than the budgetary places in higher education institution, - I do not see a problem, - Nikita Anisimov explained. - Just on prestigious specialties and the directions many entrants with the highest point in a profile subject will be taken. They will not begin to be enlisted without examinations, and the real competition will follow on a score USE in other objects. An example - MGIMO, the specialty „ International relations “: a competition on four USE - Russian, history (profile), foreign, social science. In a competition 100 points on stories are a lot of Olympiad winners on stories, therefore, at each of them. But are summarized - that all USE! Means, there will be a competition, and even the one who on Unified State Examination in history without any Olympic Games gained 85 points, has many chances if in other objects it showed high points“. whether

the Sore point

the school Is capable to prepare talented pupils for the Olympic Games which give privileges at entering a higher education institution?“ Nuggets are everywhere, - Svetlana Alfutova, the director of studies on uchebno - educational work of the Moscow city linguistic gymnasium № considers; 1513. - Of course, the Olympic Games put a high level, and usual comprehensive schools are not always able to give to pupils necessary knowledge. At schools with profound studying of this or that subject, lyceums and gymnasiums the situation is better. For example, if the school offers profound studying of chemistry, her pupils have good chances to take prizes at the Olympic Games on this discipline... Participation and victories in the Olympic Games - an indicator of level of educational institution. At the same time it is necessary to understand that many winners cannot be: in the Olympic Games first place is won by units“. whether

Many winners

Are difficult to win against

at the Olympic Games? What it is more difficult - to arrive or win against? (USE + additional tests) 95% of school students for whom there is a classical abituriyentsky program go a standard way. These are graduates of different level of preparation - from low to excellent. Many of them participated in the Olympic Games, but all - preferred to go on the way of USE and additional examinations as is so psychologically more comfortable.

Psychological comfort - an important component. And the entrants choosing option of “Olympiad“ receipt see for themselves more pluses in this way of conquest of higher education institution. It is about school students with creative or an independent way of thinking, actively showing interest in this or that discipline or a complex of disciplines.
