YEREVAN, MARCH 6, ARMENPRESS. 50 applicants from Artsakh were unable to travel to Armenia to attend the winter round of the 2023 common entrance exams for admissions to universities because of the ongoing Azerbaijani blockade of Lachin Corridor, an education official has said. 

“We maintain direct contact with our Artsakh counterparts. We’ve already received the data on the 9th graders who had applied for the exams. We don’t have problems pertaining to the graduation exams, we send them the tests, and they print it out and organize the exam. But we do have problems with the common exams. We are now discussing this issue and we don’t rule out that applicants of Artsakh could be given the chance to pass the exam twice [in summer],” the Deputy Director of the Evaluation and Testing Center of the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport Karo Nasibyan said at a press conference on March 6.
