UA House hosted the National Multi-Subject Test 2023 for Ukrainian high school grads
Over 60 Ukrainian students who fled the ongoing war in Ukraine have been given a unique opportunity to take the Ukrainian National Multi-Subject Test remotely in Sacramento at the UA House headquarters.
NMT is a crucial mandatory exam for Ukrainian high school grads aspiring to enter national universities. Despite being in the USA, their desire to take the test reflects their intention to return home and pursue higher education in Ukrainian. Anyone passing the examination may apply to Universities in Ukraine. Getting an education as a Bachelor's or Master's is crucial in aspiring to their dream job.
This exam takes place once a year and follows strict requirements on the location, time, and conditions. Thus the test in Sacramento met all regulations of the Ukrainian Ministry of Education and was supervised by them. UA House hosted this event and provided the necessary classes, computers, trained personnel, and a friendly environment. Students start preparation long before the actual date. Many students already know where they want to apply to in the future. It is essential as they must choose one particular subject for applying to a specific university. The test took three hours. Students had Ukrainian language exams, math, and an elective discipline.
On the day of the event, many students come with their parents. Then you cannot say who is more worried - a parent or a kid. Students from different states, including Nevada, Texas, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, Florida, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina, came to Sacramento to take the test. As a proverb says, "You can have anything you want if you want it badly enough."
Dmytro Kushneruk, Consul General of Ukraine in San Francisco, Vlad Skots, Chairman of UA House, and local community leaders met students. They encouraged them to aspire to achieve their dreams no matter what.
While students were passing the test, their parents had the opportunity to take the consultation regarding adaptation in the USA.
The event was held with the joint effort of partnering organizations, such as the Consulate General of Ukraine in San Francisco, Ukrainian American House, SOL Church, Leleka Foundation, Ukrainian School in Sacramento, New Horizons Hub, and Math Club.
