geography exams because the questions have leaked and were published via social networking sites.

In an interview with Dr Abdulrazak al-Ashwal, the Minister of Education, he said that the forces of evil
and destruction are fighting against any creativity or development in any field because they want to
limit any achievement. “I expect that a scenario was prepared to leak examinations. Unfortunately, the
Ministry is not its only goal, and it was really aimed at our students and the entire political settlement.”
Al-Ashwal pointed out that there is a committee investigating the leak and when the investigation is
complete, a report will be prepared and those Involved in this crime will be prosecuted in accordance
with the law.
The total numbers of imbalances and disorders that have been documented and monitored until now
are 896, including cheating and identity theft. For that, the Ministry of Education made three types
of decisions to avoid such disorders through transferring the guilty students to another examination
center, opening a cheating report, or preventing them from taking the exam.
Activists exchange pictures for student practice groups on the social networking sites. Al-Ashwal clarified
that such practices were supposedly in the past. “We know that in the past there were practices worse
than this and they were covering such issues, but we follow the transparency and accountability policy.”
Al-Ashwal sent the students a message saying that the leadership of the Ministry of Education is with
them in all stages of the process, particularly when estimating grades.
