The figures, released by Poland’s Central Examination Commission on Tuesday, include the results of exams in May, June and an extra session in August, when some pupils had a chance to retake tests to improve their scores.
Poland’s matura school leaving exams are a rite of passage and a test that determines teenagers’ future to a large degree.
The examination commission said that 98 percent of pupils this year passed their written leaving exam in Polish, 88 percent passed in mathematics, and 96 percent passed in English, the most popular foreign language among students.
