High school exams sent out to all provinces

Boxes packed with high school diploma exams, or Bac II, have been distributed across the capital and every province ahead of the December 27-28 test dates, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport has affirmed.

Centre administrators from across the country collected the exams from the ministry on December 24, it said.

“Exam committees have performed their duties in a highly responsible manner, and are enforcing the ministry's Standard Operation Procedure on health and safety for upper secondary exit examinations to prevent the spread of Covid-19,” the ministry said.

It noted that this year's exams would be administered at 204 centres, comprising 4,616 rooms, for 114,182 candidates (60,397 or 52.9 per cent women), and overseen by 31,432 proctors (just over an 11:40 ratio).

Seven ministries and institutions will be involved in the examination process, it said, adding that exams nationwide would be evaluated in the capital.
