The Minister of Education, Dr. Hamad Al-Sheikh, said that the timing of final exams in Ramadan should be appropriate for parents.
He added that the ministry did not specify the test time, indicating that the ministry may conduct a poll to determine the time, with the aim of choosing the most appropriate time for students.
He indicated in an interview with the “in the picture” program that parents and students should be partners in making the decision, because achieving the student’s interest is a duty of the ministry.
He stressed that if he chose the majority of students at seven or six in the morning, for example, the ministry would meet what would achieve them psychological and physical stability and what would be compatible with what makes them easily complete the tests.
