CAIRO - June 21, 2024: A total of 745,086 students are gearing up to begin the 2024 final exams for subjects that contribute to their overall grades in Thanaweya Amma, Egypt's national high school, on Saturday.

As in previous years, the students will commence with the Arabic subject exam after they had already completed subjects that do not count towards their final grades, such as religious studies.

Prior to the exams, Minister of Education Reda Hegazy has instructed that exam halls be opened at 8:15 AM and that students be promptly provided with their exam papers at 9 AM to avoid any delays.

Furthermore, Hegazy has called for strict measures to combat cheating, whether through conventional or electronic means, while ensuring a comfortable and calm environment in the exam halls.

The minister has also closely monitored actions related to groups involved in electronic exam cheating and has handed them over to the relevant authorities.

Stringent inspection procedures will be implemented prior to students entering the exam halls, with the minister emphasizing that electronic devices are strictly prohibited during exams.

Thanaweya Amma exams can be stressful for students and parents alike, given the competition for faculties that require high grades in the science and literature branches.

Throughout the year, students, supported by their parents, work diligently to achieve the highest possible grades, even during holidays and festive occasions.

They often sacrifice sleep, staying up late at night to revise page after page, all in pursuit of their dreams of being admitted to their desired colleges.

This year, the Thanaweya Amma exams began on June 10 and will continue until July 17 for science and literature branch students, and July 20 for mathematics students.

Egypt Today presents the complete schedule for exams that contribute to the students' final scores:

All three branches of Thanaweya Amma will have their Arabic and second foreign language exams on Saturday, June 22, and Tuesday, June 25, respectively.
