Congratulations to ICEF Deputy Director Oleg Zamkov and ICEF teacher Atatoly Peresetsky on publication of their paper “Russian Unified National Exams (UNE) and academic performance of ICEF HSE students”  in the journal “Applied Econometrics”.

Abstract
Starting from 2008, the admission to the BSc program at the ICEF (HSE) is done by the UNE results. 2008 was a transition year: both UNE and internal HSE exams results were counted. Since 2009 the regulations stay stable — only the UNE and Olympiads’ results have been taken into account. In the article the academic success factors for the students admitted in 2009–2011, after 1, 2, and 3 years of study, are analyzed. It has been shown that the students — Olympiads’ winners consistently show better results than other students, other factors equal. The UNE results are still significant for academic performance forecast after 3 years of study. But the final rating of the student after the first year accumulates almost completely the information which the UNE and Olympiads results contain. Region of a student’s school is not significant and gender is marginally significant for future aca-demic performance.
