    Competitive score

    The entrant’s competitive score, excluding studies in arts, arts, sports and theology, consists of the following components of the matriculation assessment subjects:

    • the main (first) subject assessment of the maturity exam, its weighting coefficient – 0.4;
    • the second subject or annual grade assessment of the maturity exam of (entered in the maturity certificate), its weighting factor – 0.2;
    • the third subject or annual mark assessment of the maturity examination (entered in the maturity certificate), its weighting coefficient – 0.2; this component of the competitive score consists of the assessment of any subject of the school leaving certificate that is not repeated with another subject of the competitive score, for which a state maturity examination is organized in the year of accession (the most useful assessment of the subject is used);
    • the fourth subject – the maturity exam of Lithuanian language and literature or another subject provided instead of the subject of Lithuanian language and literature, if Lithuanian language and literature is the first subject, the assessment of the maturity examination or an annual mark; weighting factor – 0.2.


    The competition queues are formed in descending order of points. Competitions take place and competition queues are formed for each group of state-funded study fields (study basket principle), and in the case of arts and education sciences – according to separate university study programs (in this case, universities have separate quotas). During a competition, the values of the competitive score, which is sufficient to obtain a state-funded or non-funded place, can vary greatly depending on the popularity of the study programs. In some fields of study, the values of the lowest entrance competitive score may be sufficient. It is therefore advisable to apply for at least a few programs when applying, which increases the chances of the entrant to become a student. Applicants with a higher competitive score will receive a state-funded study place.
