A right will be given to educational institutions for inclusive and integrated programs and the selection of students.

In high schools:
The results of the unified state exam will be valid for 5 years.
The list of beneficiaries for admission will be reduced.
A 10% quota for admission of children with disabilities and other categories of persons with disabilities is set.
Free training at the preparatory department of the university is allowed only once.
