The Ministry of Education has resumed the final exams for twelfth-grade students at the end of the second academic period this year.

Responsible sources revealed to Al-Rai newspaper that the correction mechanism is carried out normally by the committees of the scientific and literary departments. The success rate in the subjects that have been corrected is normal, and there is no trace of collective cheating or leaking in the students’ answers.

Sources said that the success rate in some subjects in the first semester was about 80 percent, while in the same subjects; it is currently about 82 percent.

Additionally, 4,000 male and female students obtained a full score in one of the scientific subjects out of 27,000 in the scientific department.
