"The main state-level school graduation examination session will start on June 7 – two weeks earlier than last year, and the main session will end on July 2. We made the decisions taking into account school-leavers' potential losses during remove learning," she told a press conference on Thursday.

Vice Minister Ramunas Skaudzius says examination results are expected on July 23 at the latest.

Also attending the press conference, Ruta Krasauskiene, director of the National Education Agency, says a distance of at least 2 meters among students will be ensured during exams and they will enter premises via several entries.

If allowed during exams, computers or dictionaries will be disinfected and disposable gloves will be used.

Just like last year, only nine students will be allowed into one room, and groups of six will be allowed into the informational technology exam.

As the coronavirus pandemic disrupted the education process last year, school graduation exams were held in late June, a month later than usual.
