Egypt’s high school exams marathon kicked off today، Saturday، in 1817 committees، amid tightened security، according to senior officials in the Interior ministry.
About 669،749 students perform Arabic language and religion exams on Sunday.
Noteworthy، In January 2017، the ministry introduced the new booklet system، which should reduce errors in the correction process and eliminate exam leaks; students are required to answer in the same test sheet and not in a separate answer sheet as the previous system.
A presidential decree issued in 2015 made leaking exams a criminal offense، leading to a maximum of one year in prison on a fine between LE 20،000 and LE 50،000.
High school exam results determine what college an Egyptian student will go to and even what subject they will study.
