We win competitions, but we struggle with math
More than 55,000 children took the math exam after 7th grade in 2019. At this stage of their education, the math exam is mandatory, which is why their number is so large. The results of this mass test, viewed through the prism of the municipalities, are very worrying. In almost all cases the grades are significantly lower than those in Bulgarian language and literature. In no municipality do students score a very good 4.50 on the math exam. Only in 10 municipalities an average score over 4.00 is reported, incl. some very small, as well as Stolichna, Varna and Burgas. However, the last three are on the edge and are actually a few hundredths of a drop below the 4.00 mark.
