Evaluation of the exam and the exam in mathematics in 2018
Mathematics is one of the main subjects of the school curriculum. Graduates of the 9th and 11th grades must have basic theoretical knowledge, as well as be able to solve problems in the field of algebra and geometry. To check these competencies and calculated tickets offered to students in the final trials.
You are planning to join the college in 2018 or become a student at one of the prestigious universities in the country - we offer to learn how the OGE and the Unified State Exam in mathematics and the assessment of exam papers are done.
The main state exam (OGE) is a form of final certification of 9th grade graduates.
For many years, the teachers themselves developed the tasks for this exam, taking into account the level of training of graduates and the profile of the school (gymnasium). But already in 2018 a set of tasks will be developed, which will be the same for all graduates of the 9th grade of educational institutions. Uniform assessment criteria will also be developed, which will allow all ninth-graders to be put on an equal footing.
Judging by the statements made by the head of the Ministry of Education and Science Olga Vasilyeva and her colleagues, no fundamental changes in the assessment of exam papers in mathematics in 2018 are expected.
During the check, for each correct decision, the OGE participant will be awarded primary points, which afterwards will be transferred to a five-point system according to the following correspondence table:
5 tibalnaya system |
Did not pass |
3 points |
4 points |
5 points |
Primary score |
0–7 |
8–14 |
15–21 |
22–32 |
Important! In 2018, the tickets will not have the Real Mathematics block, and to overcome the minimum threshold, graduates will need to score at least 4 points in the Algebra block and 4 points in the Geometry block.
When applying for the exam in mathematics, graduates of 11th grade can choose a level:
- basic (it will be enough for applicants planning to enroll in philological studies or passing the USE to obtain a certificate of completion of 11 classes);
- profile (a prerequisite when entering into technical and engineering specialties).
The basic level ticket consists of one block, which includes 20 tasks from the course of algebra and geometry, the answers to which must be entered in a special form.
Important! When filling out the form, you must follow the basic rules. The automatic check system will not count the answer if it is incorrectly entered in the answer table!
The minimum entry barrier of the basic exam in mathematics, corresponding to the assessment of "3" - 12 points, the maximum - 20 points. Thus, to obtain a certificate for graduates, it is necessary to solve any 12 of the proposed 20 tasks.
Profile level is optional. This exam is chosen for graduates who wish to enter the university for technical and engineering specialties. Naturally, the requirements for those who pass the Examination of higher complexity are higher.
The main differences of the profile level:
- the ticket consists of two blocks: basic and profile;
- there are core level tasks requiring a detailed response (recording the entire course of the decision);
- tasks with a detailed answer are checked by experts;
- minimum threshold for delivery - 27 points.
Solutions of tasks of the profile level are checked by 2 experts. Here are the following options:
- the opinions of the reviewers (points awarded) coincide - ideal;
- points are different, but not significant - the arithmetic average between the estimates from different experts is counted;
- opinions of inspectors and scores differ significantly.In this case, a third expert is involved.
In 2018, the assessment will affect the certificate and the exam results in mathematics will be interpreted according to the table:
5 tibalnaya system |
Did not pass |
3 points |
4 points |
5 points |
Primary score |
0–26 |
27–46 |
47–64 |
65 or more |
Retake OGE and USE in 2018
Since the evaluation of knowledge in mathematics is compulsory for graduates of the 9th and 11th grades, the low grades in the state exam and the unified state examination will not allow you to get a certificate and continue studying at a college or university in 2018.
The reasons for a bad result can vary from a poor physical or psychological state to the banal lack of necessary knowledge. If the student was unable to score the required passing score on the first attempt, he will get a second chance. The retake of the state examinations and the unified state examination in mathematics will be held on the reserve days according to the established schedule for the final tests of the 2017-2018 school year.
