Student anger over in-person exams despite Covid-19

Egypt’s Minister of Higher Education Khaled Abdel Ghaffar has been the subject of fierce criticism from students in the country following his announcement that all students must return to school for exams amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Abdel Ghaffar announced on Sunday that all studies and exams at university level would recommence in person from 27 February, following closures in the month of January.

According to a statement issued by the minister, no plans have been put in place to allow for online exams or research projects, and students can choose to postpone the academic year if they have concerns related to their health.
