For security reasons, the National Multisubject Test (NMT) will be held in Ukraine for the third year in a row instead of the External Independent Testing (EIT). This type of testing includes four online blocks in various subjects and is conducted within one day, life.pravda reports.


As you know, every year the NMT is supplemented by changes, in particular, in 2024, the history of Ukraine returned to the list of compulsory subjects, and elective subjects - Ukrainian literature and geography - were added.

When will the testing take place this year and what should applicants know? Read on in the article.


NMT 2024: test dates


The main testing session will be held from May 14 to June 25, and the additional session will be held from July 11 to 19. Participants who missed the main session for valid reasons will have the opportunity to take the test during the additional session.


The National Multisubject Test is conducted in one day in four subjects, which is a significant burden for participants, but it is the only way to take the test in the main session. In case of unforeseen circumstances, or in case of absence for valid reasons, participants can take the test during an additional session.


Registration for participation in the NMT lasts from March 14 to April 11, 2024 and is carried out online through the electronic cabinet on the website of the Ukrainian Center for Educational Quality Assessment (UCEQA), as well as through the Diia system.


Each participant will be able to find out the specific date and place of the exam in their electronic account on the website of the UCEQA no later than 10 days before the test.


Where will NMT 2024 be held?


NMT in Ukraine


The National Multisubject Test will be held in temporary examination centers (TECs), which will be located both within Ukraine and abroad. These centers will be located in classrooms of educational institutions equipped with computers with Internet access.


NMT participants will be able to find out the exact address of the exam center through an invitation that will be available in their personal electronic account by May 8 (in the case of the main session). This will be the closest center to the city that the applicant indicated during registration.


On the day of the test, participants should arrive at the test center at 10:00 a.m., and the last acceptable arrival time is 10:50 a.m.


NMT abroad


As for those who were forced to leave the country, they will have the opportunity to take the test in such countries as Poland, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States and 24 others. The Ukrainian Center for Educational Quality Assessment (UCEQA) is also negotiating with countries such as Spain, Moldova, and the Netherlands to organize testing. The number of countries on this list may increase as negotiations are still ongoing.


NMT for graduates from the occupied territories


Persons from the occupied territories will not be able to take the National Multisubject Test (NMT) in the occupied territories.


However, there is an alternative for applicants from the temporarily occupied territories: they will be able to enter Ukrainian higher education institutions without having to take the NMT. To do this, they will need to conclude an agreement with the educational institution on education within three months of starting their studies. This process will take place under a special procedure aimed at ensuring access to education for all citizens, regardless of their place of residence.

Break between test blocks

If an applicant needs to go to the restroom during the test, the time allotted for the test will not be stopped.

When will I know the results of the NMT?


You will be able to get your test scores for each NMT block instantly on your computer screen after completing all the tasks. The exam results, converted to a scale from 100 to 200 points, will be available in your personal account on the website of the Ukrainian Center for Educational Quality until July 2 (for the main session) and July 26 (for the additional session).


As for the conversion of test scores into rating scores, this can be done using a special table. In order to consider the NMT passed, it is important to score the minimum "threshold" in each subject. Here are the minimum test scores you need to get in each subject:


• Ukrainian language - 7 points out of 45;

• Mathematics - 5 points out of 32;

• Ukrainian history - 8 points out of 54;

• Ukrainian literature - 7 points out of 45;

• in a foreign language - 5 points out of 32;

• Biology - 7 points out of 46;

• Physics - 5 points out of 32;

• Chemistry - 6 points out of 40;

• in geography - 7 points out of 46.


Different specialties have different coefficients for the results of each block of NMT. With the help of these coefficients, you can determine which subjects are more important for admission to a particular specialty.


What should I take with me to the test?


You should have the following with you for the NMT:


📌 Passport, ID-card or international passport (it is advisable to have documents from Diia as well).

📌 Paper or electronic certificate of participation in the NMT (you can download it from your account on the UCEQA website after checking your registration documents).

📌 A pen of any color for taking notes in the draft.

📌 A snack and an unlabeled water bottle.


Attention! It is forbidden to bring any gadgets, such as phones, smartwatches, headphones, calculators, cameras, flash drives, and other electronic equipment to the NMT exam. This is important because in previous years, there have been cases where applicants have tried to use gadgets to cheat, which could lead to the cancellation of their results.


Participants will be able to leave personal belongings that are prohibited during the test in a designated storage area in the classroom. There will be instructors who will talk about organizational issues and provide drafting sheets. You will be able to make any notes on these sheets that you can take with you after the test.


Reference materials, such as math, chemistry, and physics tables, will be available on the work computers in special tabs. However, you will not be allowed to use your own notes during the exam.


Actions during an air raid 


Testing during the air raid will be stopped and will continue only after the air raid is over and participants and staff return to the classrooms. If a test taker has already started testing, they will be able to continue from the same place where they left off.


If the air raid lasts longer than expected, participants will have to take the test in an additional session. Recommendations on time limits during the alert will be provided to test center staff.


NMT 2024: what do applicants need to know?


It is important to keep the following steps in mind for admission:


📚 Registration in a personal electronic cabinet: starting from July 1, applicants will have to register their personal electronic cabinets on the website of the Ukrainian Center for Educational Quality Assurance.

📚 Use of test results: for admission, it will be possible to use certificates with the results of NMT 2023 and 2022 or a certificate of EIT 2021. This applies to all specialties.

📚 Creative competition for some specialties: applicants for creative and sports specialties, in addition to testing, can pass a creative competition.

📚 Submitting applications to higher education institutions: applicants will have the opportunity to submit up to fifteen applications to higher education institutions: five applications for a budget and up to ten for a contract.
