From June 20 to July 15, about 20,000 students of Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University will be taking final exams at three examination centers opened in Tbilisi, Kutaisi and Akhaltsikhe. TSU Rector George Sharvashidze, Deputy Rector Nino Gvenetadze, Head of Administration, Lasha Saghinadze, Deputy Head of Administration, Giorgi Shamatava and Head of the Learning Process Management Department, Shota Potolashvili familiarized themselves with the examination processes on the ground.
A total of 171 students will take exams in Kutaisi and Akhaltsikhe additional examination centers. The only exception will apply to 53 students who are staying in the occupied regions. They can pass final exams online.
TSU Rector George Sharvashidze visited Akaki Tsereteli Kutaisi State University, where TSU’s additional examination center is located. 138 students were registered in the Kutaisi center. “There is a high turnout of students. The process is underway in a calm atmosphere. I wish students success because today is a very important day for them, the first day of examinations. I would especially like to wish success to those students who are graduating from the university. This is our 100th graduation and I wish everyone success and passing the exams in a normal atmosphere,” Rector Sharvashidze said.
Head of TSU Administration, Lasha Saghinadze noted the high turnout of students at the Tbilisi Examination Center. “We expect up to 3,500 students at the Tbilisi Examination Center per day. Today we visited the auditoriums of the Tbilisi Examination Center. I wish all students great success,” Saghinadze said.
Deputy Rector Nino Gvenetadze and Head of the Learning Process Management Department Shota Potolashvili visited the additional examination center located at Samtskhe-Javakheti State University. 33 students will be passing their final exams at the Akhaltsikhe additional examination center.
Offline examinations are a novelty for those people who became students during the pandemic. Mariam Bregvadze, a student at the International School of Economics at TSU, said that the decision to conduct offline exams was timely. “In the first semester, it was easier for me to write exams, because I was in a familiar situation, and I was writing at home. Of course, it was hard, but I think eventually we would still need to adapt and someday we would have to start that process. Therefore, I think this choice was normal,” she noted.
The final exams of the spring semester of the 2021-2022 academic year will be held at Tbilisi State University from June 20 to July 15, and the additional exams will be held from July 22 to July 29.
