Military may get benefits in admission to higher education institutions

Amendments to the law On the status of servicemen have been submitted to the Parliament.

The document, according to the initiators, is designed to encourage soldiers who provide security and protect the borders, to fulfill their military duties more efficiently.

As of today, the results of the Republic-wide testing are valid for a year. Deputies of the Parliament propose to extend the term to two years for servicemen who have passed the test before the military conscription.

«A conscript serviceman after the service has a prerogative right when entering the professional and higher educational institutions of the Kyrgyz Republic. At the same time, it is prohibited to study at a university during military service,» the proposed law says.
