Education Minister Elias Bou Saab Saturday dismissed that test questions for Grade 9 official exams have been leaked, after media allegations reported that official questions had been released to students and the parents of students sitting the Brevet examinations.Official exams commenced Friday after Bou Saab agreed with the Union Coordination Committee earlier this week to postpone the start of official exams from Thursday. According to Bou Saab, the exam questions were not difficult, but at the same time not easy enough to tarnish the reputation of the Lebanese certificate.Bou Saab urged law makers Wednesday to resolve the wage hike issue and end the teachers' strike so tests would be graded on time.
