Conclusions and recommendations

Children in the Slovak Republic must complete 10 years of schooling and the majority attend public schools, but they may be enrolled in different school types according to their interests and academic ability. Regional and municipal authorities exert a direct influence over public schools as their organising bodies (“school founders”). Children may transfer to an academically selective school (a gymnázium) at the start of Year 6 (age 11), Year 9 (age 14) or Year 10 (age 15). National examinations at the end of upper secondary schooling (Maturita) certify student achievement with a view to higher education access. Since 2009, there is a full-cohort national summative assessment in Year 9 (Testovanie 9) in the Slovak language and literature, as well as, where applicable, in the major language of instruction (Hungarian or Ukrainian), and in mathematics. A new national summative assessment in Year 5 is expected to be introduced in 2014/15.
