Final exams will be conducted in each obligatory subjects established by the National Educational Plan. Those students who cannot get the passing score in one of the subjects (or cannot come on the exam), will have a chance to pass the exam in same subject at the end of the 12th grade with the other 4 exams (Georgian language and literature, foreign language, math, history).
The finals are PC based exams, which are conducted by using new Georgian model of tests adapted for a computer (Gcat). Georgian version of the test- algorithm and software, which is customized for capabilities of a student, was created in the National Assessment and Examinations Center.

The system selects each following question according to the answers of a student until it determines full knowledge and skills of a student.
