High school students who have completed five units – the highest level – of mathematics studies will be awarded an advantage when applying for university, the Education Ministry announced on Sunday.

The initiative, led by Education Minister Naftali Bennett, aims to encourage students to pursue higher levels of study in the field of mathematics.

As part of the plan, students taking the matriculation exam in five units of mathematics will receive an extra bonus of 35 points in calculating their overall score, instead of the 25 points given to date.

For example, if a student receives a score of 70 on their matriculation exam, their final grade will be calculated by the universities as 105.
