This is what our students who have taken part in the Competition say:

image003.png The Competition is a great chance to test your abilities and demonstrate the level of your knowledge. For me, the competitions have always been very important as they gave me an incentive to achieve new goals and solve important problems. After all, one thing is to compete with your classmates and see that you are the smartest in your class at school, and it’s quite different when you demonstrate your capabilities and compete with other students who are the best in their classes at school. When getting prepared for taking part in the competitions, we significantly expand our horizons and improve our knowledge in different areas. The knowledge that I have acquired during the period of preparation for the competition helped me make my biggest dream come true. I was enrolled in the Financial University. Moreover, each time I take part in a competition, I become bolder and more confident in what I know.
image005.png I have been interested in taking part in the Competition as the winners have a chance to become enrolled in the Financial University and do not have to take entrance examinations. When I first learnt about the Competition, I thought the Financial University could become my prospective place of study. The Competition helped me assess my knowledge and incentivised me to learn more about the University.
image007.png The Competition included non-standard assignments that were a very interesting thing to do. The Competition helped me identify new areas for development and helped me understand which topics deserved my attention during the prospective period of study. I think enough time was given to us so that we could do the assignments and check everything before leaving. I am very glad that the University gives applicants an opportunity to show one’s worth.

It was a great opportunity for the applicants to assess their knowledge and identify the areas which should be improved. This Competition helped me become a Financial University student. I wish you success in entering the university of your dreams!
