Taking part in the Olympiad, participants have the opportunity for six months to analyze their own abilities and determine for themselves the right direction. At the same time, the SPT serves as a kind of psychological help to entrants before the national examination. The project is a reliable guidebook, through which each graduate will be able to test his level of knowledge, ability and even win a 100% internal grant.
At the same time, within the framework of the project, parents and applicants will receive the necessary consulting and methodological assistance in choosing specialties. Thus, the Olympiad is considered a popular platform, which contributes to:
• Identify gifted children from remote regions of the country;
• identify professional inclinations and give the necessary guidance in a career;
• determine the appropriate profile of education in the university.
The registration for SPT is open until February 28, 2018.
