Education Minister Elias Bou Saab announced Monday the postponement of official exams, but stopped short of outlining an alternative solution if Parliament failed to pass the salary scale demanded by teachers.According to the minister, Brevet exams would be postponed from June 7 to June 12, while Baccalaureate exams would be postponed from June 12 to June 16 and June 22 to June 27 . The exams are crucial for Grade 9 students to move on to high school and graduating seniors to enter university. Bou Saab warned he would take "unprecedented" steps in order to avoid a repetition of what happened in 2010, when official exams were not held until August.
