101 451 people took part in the Geographical Dictation - 2019 online. It was possible to do it in Russian and in English. Last year, 119 thousand people participated the Dictation online. This time, most of the participants passed the geographical test at venues - at the moment, there is counting and verification of forms.
We would like to recall that the educational campaign of the Russian Geographical Society took place at 5831 specially organized venues in all regions of Russia and in 109 foreign countries on October 27. For those who could not get to a venue, the online Dictation was organized - it was possible to check knowledge on the Internet from October 27 to 31.
The Geographical Dictation consisted of 40 questions. The first part was 10 questions of the basic level, the so-called geographical educational program. It was compiled on the basis of well-known facts from geography. The second part of the 30 questions was more complex, required the use of imaginative thinking, system logic and erudition. The participant was awarded 1 point for each correct answer, for an incorrect answer - 0 points. Thus, the participant received two results. The maximum number of points for the first part of the Dictation was 10, for the second - 30. 45 minutes were allotted for the Dictation. The participants of the online Dictation found out their results immediately.
The results of the Dictation, written on venues, will be available from November 29. They can be found on the website dictant.rgo.ru by the identification number of the form.
