The Evaluation Affairs Department of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education issued a circular to directors of public and private secondary schools that apply national standards, regarding how to conduct study examinations for students infected with Coronavirus (Covid-19), and students quarantined for the twelfth grade (day and adult education).

According to the circular, the absence of these students from the end of the first-semester exam is counted (with an acceptable excuse), and an extension test will be conducted for these students in the curriculum of the first semester, provided that the date of the supplement test is Jan. 19, 2021.

These students are required to bring a certificate from the Ministry of Public Health proving the date of the student's infection with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) or the date the student was placed in quarantine, and schools send this certificate to the Secondary Certificate Control - the Student Assessment Department - in order to take the necessary measures.
