# USE in mathematics 2020

The system of all-Russian knowledge testing has been working for a long time, although it still raises debates about its relevance. Recently, notable differences in the level of complexity were introduced into the math exam, which was perceived ambiguously, but the advantages of this approach are still obvious to most parents. The exam in mathematics 2020 is already close, it remains to understand what surprises the authorities have prepared for schoolchildren and whether parents should be nervous about this.

## Math Exam Rules

Regardless of whether the profile level and the basic version of the exam are passed, the rules of conduct on the exam and the procedure itself are uniform. In most cases, the rules are fairly standard and relate to ordinary measures to prevent cheating and receiving responses from others.

Among the rules there are such mandatory requirements:

- communication with other students is prohibited;
- the use of mobile communications is inadmissible;
- the study of third-party literature at the time of the exam is prohibited;
- students are not allowed to change seats or sit together;
- leaving the audience is allowed only accompanied by an observer.

These are standard rules already known to most students from grades 7-8. Moreover, these requirements without fail will be repeated at the test certification, at the time of preparation for the exam, as well as during the briefing on the exam itself.

Worth to know! The duration of the profile and basic math exams differs by 55 minutes.A more complex exam takes 3 hours 55 minutes.Also, for different levels of complexity, different packages of documents are provided, and the basic version has 1 task more.

At the same time, students completing grade 11 should be familiar with the grading system for assignments in order to understand the importance of certain issues. Such knowledge allows you to score more points even with fewer tasks.

## Features of assessing the exam in mathematics

After the basic level appeared, which allows passing the discipline in the minimum amount of standard complexity, for students planning to enter universities that require passing the math, more difficult times have come. Even inside the exam of the profile level, you need to score a large number of points.

At the same time, those who pass the profile exam have the opportunity to get several points in one task. The project demo of the increased complexity exam has not only questions rated at 2 or 3 points. In KIMs of increased complexity there are 2 tasks that can give 4 points each - these are the final questions of work under numbers 18 and 19.

To assess an exam in mathematics of basic complexity does not require complex systems of calculation. Primary points are calculated in an elementary way - the correct answer, correctly entered in the appropriate field on the form, will bring 1 unit to the student. Therefore, for 20 correct assignments, the student will receive the same primary points. At the same time, for the minimum positive result, the student only needs to answer 7 tasks.

Attention! It is important to remember that to get high scores you need to have a good knowledge of mathematics, not only from the point of view of algebra. It is also necessary to understand geometry by answering at least 2 questions on this topic. However, even minor changes that were not taken into account by schoolchildren in a timely manner can affect the final scores.

Changes in the structure and assessment of the exam are usually the most interesting information for future graduates. This is especially important for those who have to take the profile exam in mathematics, which is necessary for entering a university.

## Expected Changes and Exam Dates

Teachers are almost calm about innovations that have become almost regular in the structure or assessment of the exam in any discipline. In fact, changes were really required, but every year they are becoming less global, and in some disciplines even more rare.

This situation develops in 2020 in a number of disciplines - they will not introduce the planned global changes in the math exam. Previously on the FIPI website it is said that there are no changes in the planned structure of the CMMs and the assessment system. In this case, it is important to take into account the fact that the final wording of the tasks requires slightly different results. Conventionally, this may be a change in the requirement in the search for the value of “x” according to the schedule, although earlier it was required to find “y” there.

Interesting to know! In the summer of 2019, the representative of the LDPR party, Boris Chernyshov, put forward a proposal to introduce a 5-year moratorium on changes in the structure and content of the exam. In his opinion, this approach will allow students to calmly prepare for exams, and teachers to conduct their subject, and even officials to analyze the shortcomings, preparing a high-quality database of complete changes.

So far, the situation with the introduction of such a moratorium has not been indicated at the legislative level. A proposal has been put forward, but what will happen next is still unknown. The same can be said for the final exam dates. They are usually approved closer to exams. However, for a general presentation of dates, you can focus on last year's dates for the exam in the desired discipline.

In the past 2019, the dates were as follows:

- Early term: March 22, reserve April 10.
- Main dates: May 29, reserve June 24, July 1.
- Additional stage: September 6, reserve September 20.

So far, regarding the passing of mathematics in 2020, only the preliminary date of the main period is known. For a one-time surrender of the base and profile, May 29 is implied. There is still no data on early and additional dates, although everything is clear with the demo version.

## Demo USE in mathematics

Initially, over the past year, students, parents and teachers are offered a promising model of the upcoming exam. It can be studied and even challenged incomprehensible / incorrect points. Later, the final demo of the future USE appears - this is the final version.

It is worth remembering that the profile level has a separate demo version that surpasses the basic version of the exam in terms of complexity. The structure of the profile exam in mathematics is as follows:

- the work consists of 2 parts;
- In total contains 19 tasks;
- short answers 12 - 8 of 1 part, 4 of the second;
- Tasks 13 to 19 require a complete answer, which is recorded on form No. 2.

In the demo version, students are offered several options for each of the tasks. This allows us to approximately assume the variety of required knowledge, as well as to practice solving such detailed mathematical operations. If we consider the basic version, then the exam consists of a list of tasks located in one part. There are 20 of them. Moreover, among the tasks in algebra, there are also questions affecting geometry.

For the convenience of schoolchildren, parents and teachers, demos of various difficulty levels are offered in PDF format, available for viewing:

- codifier;
- base level demo;
- demo profile level;
- qualifier for the base level;
- qualifier for the profile level;
- reference materials for a basic level.

These data will allow not only to get acquainted with the content and structure of the upcoming exam, but also provide better training. However, not all students until the last moment fully realize the importance of this process.

## Preparation for the exam in mathematics and its importance

It is unlikely that there will be a person who believes that emergency training in mathematics is possible. Algebra and geometry are successive disciplines with the effect of "strung multi-colored beads" - each small bead must be in its place, otherwise the pattern will not work. Also with mathematics - the lack of consistent knowledge deprives the subject of the "pattern" of understanding, not allowing the quality to master further topics. Therefore, to learn discipline is worth it carefully from the very beginning.

Attention! Despite the importance of a consistent study of the discipline, students should remember that even unsystematic training is better than its complete absence. In addition, any repetition of the material disciplines, allowing you to understand the significance of the upcoming event, subconsciously making you learn something new and be more attentive in the classroom. In general, even partial preparation for the exam gives some confidence in their abilities, which allows you to remain calm on the exam, really helping to solve complex tasks.

In the process of preparation, you should not ignore the various resolvers of ready-made assignments and the options for exams / projects / demos of past years. In addition, specialized courses have already appeared that allow you to prepare for the profile exam in online mode.

Also required for study is a regularly updated selection of the most frequently encountered errors on the exam. Such reference information will help students take these errors into account in the preparation process, precluding the possibility of them being made during the exam in advance.

## Right of appeal

Students should be aware that a suspicion of biased low scores is a reason to appeal. It is important to remember that students have two days to appeal their grades after the official submission of information with the results.

At the same time, there is an important requirement regarding the place of appeal - the student must submit a written application only to the educational organization that has admitted a particular student to pass the exam. If protesting the results requires a graduate of previous years, then he must apply with a written application to the institution that registered him for the exams.

The exam in mathematics 2020 will be held in the already known format with a division into basic and specialized levels. No changes on a global scale are foreseen, and demo versions in design form for each of the difficulty levels are already available for familiarization and preparation. The exact dates of the examinations will be known a little later, but the timing of the Unified State Examination-2019 allows you to partially navigate in the numbers and months.
