TOP-5 most popular disciplines for passing state exams

TOP-5 most popular disciplines for passing state exams

Choosing subjects for passing the exam in grade 11, schoolchildren determine their professional future. At the same time, they themselves and their parents are very worried about the likelihood of making a mistake that will be difficult to correct.

In total, the exam is held in 14 subjects, but only Russian and mathematics are required for passing. One or two additional subjects that will be needed when entering a university, students choose independently, based on their own abilities and interests.

How to choose subjects to enter the required university for the required specialty? Let's try to figure out which disciplines graduates choose most often.

Social science

Almost every second graduate chooses social studies as an additional subject. According to the study, 385,000 students out of 779,000 applied for this discipline at the 2019 USE.


Physics ranks second. In 2019, about 174,000 students took the Unified State Exam in this subject.

Chemistry and biology

Such subjects are popular among students intending to enroll in medical schools. The popularity of biology is also due to the fact that it is required for admission to pedagogical specialties.


History is chosen by graduates who decided to link their future professional activities with jurisprudence and political science.

The choice of a future specialty and subjects for passing the exam is not an easy matter. First you need to decide on the area of interest and your capabilities. Labor market research will allow us to weed out professions that have lost their relevance and are oversaturated with specialists. Visit the university you like, chat with students and teachers to see the educational institution and student life from the inside: this approach will help narrow the number of options for admission and reduce the likelihood of error.
