Abstract

The paper considers efficiency of the Russian Unified State Exam (USE, or EGE, Russian version of SAT), and results of «olympiads» — national students’ contests in economics, mathematics as predictors of ICEF HSE students’ academic achievements. Most courses in ICEF are taught in English, but USE in English is not a significant predictor. USE in mathematics and Russian are significant predictors, but only USE in Russian is significant for the probability of drop-out. Olympiads’ winners demonstrate substantially better performance than other students.
