2017
The aim of this study is the analysis of the matching mechanism, produced by existing system of enrollment by means of the United State Exam (USE) and estimation of factors which can drive admission outcomes from the desirable equilibrium. The methodology of this research is based on the game theory and its two-sided matching model of relationships between universities and applicants and also on the educational production function. The results include the estimation of the importance of various characteristics (family factors, school variables and so on) in the genesis of two types of mismatching. Based on these empirical estimations, the level of accessibility of higher education within one important regional higher education market is described and possible policy implications concerning the inequalities during the admission process are provided. The results are useful not only for policy makers, but also for households.

The applied significance of the research is the possibility of using the recommendations developed by its results in the implementation of educational policy by the state andin planning further admission to the university by households.
