Guidelines for Official Exams

Decision No. 142/m/2017 dated on 16th February 2017: The amended guidelines for official exams issued in decision No. 142/m/2017 dated on 16th February 2017 and signed by his Excellency Mr. Marwan Hamadeh regarding the corrected versions attached to decision No. 631/m/2016 dated 3/9/2016 which include guidelines for Basic Education and Secondary Education Certificates.

Decision No. 631/m/2016 dated 3/9/2016: Minister Bou Saab issued another decision related to Official Exams Specification and entrusted CERD to carry out this mission. Meetings were held with all experts and specialists at CERD and those from both the public and private sectors who adopted a new plan of action based on coordination among the three languages and among the Sciences as well as the Social studies. The purpose is to unify and agree on the language used in similar subjects to tackle a larger number of small questions and constantly strive to cover the largest part of the curriculum. This trend aims to give a greater chance to answering questions; taking into account the knowledge areas, critical thinking and communication.

In the meetings, committees focused on sequential questions within a single question; questions that are stemmed from the learner’s factual life situations that depend on analysis and are designed adopting specific criteria in grades distribution once the exam is corrected.   

The Minister gave his instructions to the General Directorate to distribute these two decisions to all schools and make them available on CERD’s website. www.crdp.org
