More students are taking highest level math matriculation exam, says ministry

There was an increase of some 6,000 students this year who took the five-unit (highest level) mathematics matriculation exam, Education Minister Naftali Bennett announced on Tuesday.

Speaking at a press conference at the ORT School in Lod, Bennett announced the results of the education ministry’s push for more students to take the five-unit math matriculation exam.

“After a decade of dangerous decline in mathematics and science, I am happy to announce that we have overturned the trend,” he said.
