5-6 grades applicants have to pass mathematics and Russian language tests on previous study year material.

7-11 grades applicants have to attend 2 weeks of test lessons with subjects depending on the grade: Russian language and mathematics for 7-9 grades; Russian language, mathematics and an optional secondary subject for 10-11 grades.

Test lessons are dedicated to certain topics regarding each subject and consist of such elements as explanation, practice and testing.

The primary idea of our test lessons is to analyze students’ potential, not their knowledge.
