Though the Education Ministry has previously issued a decree allowing Syrians and Lebanese previously attending school in Syria to take the official exams, these students have not received confirmation that they are registered to take the crucial test.Based on the Cabinet's recommendation, the ministry announced that students coming from Syria had the right to take the official exams, but was unclear whether the policy allowed Syrians without proper documents, such as IDs, to take the test.The proposal was adopted by the Cabinet on April 24, and also stated that Lebanese who pursued one or more years of study in Syria but could not provide equivalency documents, could still partake in the exams.
