High school students, Thanaweya Amma, took the Arabic exam on Saturday; they said it was said difficult.
Tarek Shawki, Minister of Education and Technical Education, responded to the complaints of the students about the Arabic language exam.
“This is a purely academic issue,” Shawqi stated. “We do not want to comment on it, and it should not be addressed by non-specialists.”
Regarding claims of cheating on social media for questions about the Arabic subject, the minister affirmed that copying (cheating) is completely impossible as the exam was about 16 pages.
“It’s entirety difficult. The questions were phrased differently in each exam paper,” the minister asserted. ” Any trial of copying papers will not affect the students, but will harm those who do it and those who follow it.”
