We present to you the correct answers to the questions of all versions of the Geographical Dictation–2021. You can find them on the website of the educational campaign of the Russian Geographical Society.

In 2021, the Dictation was compiled in four versions, identical in degree of difficulty: basic, for the visually impaired, for the online format, and a demo version. The tasks consisted of closed-ended questions. So, the participants were asked to determine the correct order, choose an extra option from the group, do some matching, and so on.

Each version consisted of a dozen fairly simple questions based on well-known facts, and 30 more complex tasks that required logic and ingenuity. Some of them were invented by the participants of the "Write your question for the Geographical Dictation" competition.

Let us remind you that this year the educational campaign of the Russian Geographical Society was held for the seventh time. At the venues, the Dictation was taken in-person and remotely on November 14. In total, more than 8700 venues of the event were registered in Russia and 106 countries of the world. For those who could not register at the venues, the online Dictation was organized – it was possible to test one’s knowledge on the Internet from November 14 to 24.

The final results of the Geographical Dictation will be announced later. However, it is already known that there are more excellent students – those who answered all the questions correctly – this year. Those who made mistakes can now see which tasks were completed incorrectly.
