"We want to unlink the grading system of schools of general education so that it is not based on examinations only, we also want to assess the progress, we are talking about cumulative assessment applied in many countries," the minister told Žinių Radijas news radio on Tuesday morning.

In her words, the changes should be prepared within a few years.

Graduation achievements and knowledge of high school graduates are currently rated in school and state exams.
