Dr Hussein indicated that the number of students registered to take exams on campus has reached 10,000 students according to a system that depends on the type of courses and their requirements.

No student would be awarded grades without attempting examinations this year, the education minister stressed, adding: "If we do not conduct the exams, then students will not even employ minimum efforts to study."
