This year's exam season has been rife with cheating and the circulation of papers online, facilitated by mobile phones with internet access, which students have smuggled into exam halls.
Sherbini called on parliament to apply the cybercrime prevention law in an attempt to stop cheating via the internet.
The Education Ministry is now exploring ways to cut off internet connection in exam centers. "Phone jammers", devices which stop mobile phones from picking up signal from network providers and therefore prevent mobile web connection, are an option being discussed.
But various objections have been raised in response to Sherbini's proposal.
An official decision remains to be made.
