This paper examines the effects of pre-entry coaching (both in terms of money and efforts) on achievement of Russian high school graduates expressed in the results of the Unified state examination (USE). Using the dataset of students from 16 biggest Russian cities which includes information on USE results, family background, school characteristics and patterns on pre-entry training, factors which determine final results are estimated. Parental education, family income, student’s abilities, the fact of graduation of magnet school are significant predictors of USE results in Russian, Mathematics and the average USE score. Characteristics of pre-entry courses (duration of a program as well as total fee) have positive influence on USE scores, but the effect of this kind of pre-entry training is moderate. Attending classes with tutors has significant (but still moderate) effect only on USE score in Russian.
