Ministry of Education spokesperson Ahmed Al-Masafa said the ministry has ensured that health protocols were in place, and that students, administrators and supervisors were in full compliance with health instructions.  He said an operations center, established at the ministry to receive any possible complaint by students and parents, did not record any incident throughout the day. 

Masafa said that in addition to a relatively small number of students sitting for this session in comparison with other sessions, a big number of students have registered to repeat their exams to “raise their grades and meet university acceptance requirements and this is why the day ran smoothly as the students were well aware of the necessary conduct related to the pandemic.”

The ministry’s director of exams said that the ministry has stipulated that students sitting for the exams must have received two doses of the vaccine and that those unvaccinated were required to submit a PCR test valid for 48 hours. As for infected students, he said, the ministry receives daily updated lists from the Ministry of Health and those lists are circulated to all exam halls to take the necessary measures.
