In the testing of abilities, 5,745 candidates participated. The calculation of the results of this stage took place in an automated mode.

A little later, after processing the results, the overall rating with scores was published on the Agency’s website and Pkrezerv.kz.

The National Commission has determined the maximum number of candidates admitted to the subsequent stages of selection to the reserve.
