Abstract:
For any speciality, the equality of sciences is impossible, and therefore the taught disciplines are not equal. In the most general form, this can be formulated as follows: core subjects are more important thannon-core ones. Practically everything should depend on the position taken by the discipline in this simple hierarchy, including the main form of organization of the educational process.

Keywords: core disciplines, non-core disciplines, lectures, seminars, exams
