The ministry will announce the results in a press conference held under strict precautionary measures, featuring the participation of the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Khaled Abdel-Ghaffar who will explain how admissions to universities will be conducted under the new assessment system.
Test results will be announced in a brand new way, the ministry said, following the application of the modified assessment system, multiple choice questions and answer by bubble sheet and the implementation of electronic correcting with no human-involvement to monitor and compile grades.
The results will be announced three hours after the press conference ends at 1:00 pm.
Later, the ministry’s link to the results in detail will be made available to detail grades on various subjects, general student rankings and rankings on each subject.
And the ministry added that students will no longer be getting 100 percent, with grade segmentation having been modified due to a decline in high school degrees crossing 100 percent recently.
The Minister of Education confirmed that these result indicators are very reassuring, and the success rate is close to last year with different groups of grades.
