A ministry source said that the education development plan includes recommendations which cover all educational levels, starting from preschool to completing university. The education reform strategy is comprehensive, but it is still under discussion by a Cabinet committee, the source added.

In a separate development, the head of the ministry’s Testing Directorate, Mohammed Al-Kenana, said that initial signs on the Tawjihi results “is very promising”.

He said some students got full marks in the subjects which have been corrected so far, a local media outlet reported.

Kenana affirmed that the vast majority of high school students are compliant with exam instructions, but noted that there are some irregularities at an acceptable level. He added that the Ministry of Education reviews all remarks related to Tawjihi exams.

Commenting on some purported violations committed during the exams, namely the use of mobile phones, he said there were 230 such violations,  which resulted “in the denial of two examination courses”.
