The best schools are:
1. Klaipėda licėjus (took 1st place last year),
2. Panevėžys J. Balčikonis Gymnasium (2nd place last year),
3. Vilnius Sholem Aleichem ORT Gymnasium (7th place last year).
A total of 360 gymnasia without entrance exams were sampled and assessed. The rating is based on the averaged final state examination performance by students last year including tests on Lithuanian language and literature, history, English, information technology, physics, chemistry, biology and geography. The best-scoring gymnasium received eight points and the worst zero.
The rating was also weighted with bonus points for 12th graders who received 100% on their final exams and the number of students who went on to win government-paid places at universities. Bonus points were also given for the number of students who went on to study at institutions of higher learning abroad.
