Lithuania will consider to introduce a state-level school graduation exam of Polish as a mother tongue, according to a declaration signed by Polish and Lithuanian ministers.
Results of the exam would then be accepted for university admissions.
The declaration was signed by Lithuanian Education Minister Algirdas Monkevičius and his Polish counterpart Dariusz Piontkowski on Thursday in Vilnius where the two countries held a joint government meeting.
Under the document, Lithuania will finish deliberating the possibility of the Polish exam by 2022.
Currently in Lithuania, students can take only a school-level Polish language exam. Most university programmes, however, ask for state-level exam results.
All school graduates in Lithuania are required to take a Lithuanian exam.
