USE in Russian in 2020

FIPI told what changes are possible in the Unified State Examination of 2020 and we propose to analyze in detail how the Russian language exam will change, what the structure of KIM will be, whether the previously announced oral part will appear, and when the test will take place (date).

Familiarization with the innovations, specifications and codifiers is an important stage from which the intensive preparation of the 11th grader for the upcoming exams should begin. And the first thing we’ll talk about at the beginning of the school year is the Russian language, which will be a mandatory exam for the USE 2020.

Exam Regulations

In 2020, the exam in the Russian language will be held on May 28. As a reserve day, the date of the June 22nd date is indicated in the draft GIA calendar.

Key facts:

  • exam duration - 210 min. (3.5 hours);
  • additional materials - not allowed;
  • maximum primary point - 54 (corresponds to 100 test points);
  • the minimum test score is 36.

Oral part

Despite the previously announced introduction of a compulsory oral exam in native language, in 2020 the Unified State Exam in Russian will be held in the format familiar to students - this will be a classic exam that is close in structure and content to the Unified State Exam of last season.

The introduction of the oral part, which will not be this year, nevertheless remains in the plans of the leadership and it is possible that the changes will be formally adopted already for the exam 2021 or 2022.

Perhaps the ministry decided not to rush into speaking at GIA-11, but first to see how the oral part in the OGE will prove itself for the 9th grade. Recall that in 2020, all ninth-graders of Russia in February will pass the test as admission to the United State Examination (by analogy with the final essay, which graduates of grade 11 will write in December).

Major changes

The USE reform has been completed, and in the coming year, passing the Russian language will be much easier to prepare for the tests, focusing on the recommendations of 2020 and 2019.

The structure of KIM will remain the same. The examiner will be offered 27 tasks on the ticket, which will be distributed as follows:


Number of tasks

Job Feature


26 (№1 - 26)

Test part


1 (№27)

The writing

In the first part, the answer can be a number, number, sequence of numbers, letter, word or phrase.

The maximum primary score in 2020 will remain the same - 58. At the same time, the examiner can get 34 points for completing the tasks of the 1st part, and 24 for the essay.

The distribution of the maximum number of primary points for the implementation of the first part of the work has not changed:




No. 1-7, 9-15 and 17-25









The criteria for evaluating the essay (task No. 27) in 2020 received minor clarifications, but the distribution of points for the main 12 points remained the same:

Secrets of preparation

Since the oral part in the USE in 2020 is not planned, preparation for the test in the Russian language will be aimed at solving the tasks of the test part and writing essays.

In order to successfully cope with the tasks of the 1st block, it is necessary to repeat all the rules of the Russian language and “get a hand” to quickly and clearly give answers to typical questions that will meet KIM. To this end, teachers recommend working out the theory, collected in special publications recommended by FIPI. You can, of course, turn to school books, but in this case, searching for information can take much more valuable time. Trial test cases will also be useful (you can also solve the 2019 demo version).

Important! The materials developed for the Unified State Exam 2018 are not relevant, since last year KIMs were significantly changed.

Preparation for writing an essay is a long and difficult process. Even the children who carefully read all the works will need to refresh the main plots, portraits of the characters and other important facts of the works, which can serve as a support for examples.

To start work on literary works is a list of so-called universal works, in the texts of which you can easily pick up examples for a variety of topics.

Of course, it’s not enough just to re-read all the works that are on the list of recommended literature. Each work should be carefully worked out, writing quotes, thoughts, examples and all that can be useful in the exam in the notebook.

We recommend immediately sorting found in four directions:

  • person and person;
  • man and society;
  • man and culture;
  • human and nature.
