Egypt's Ministry of Education will make the seating numbers of candidates taking the high school thanaweya amma exam this year available on Saturday, they said on their official website.

The ministry announced that they will be distributing the seating numbers to schools on Sunday.

The student can get their own seating numbers for free, by signing to prove receipt. If they lose their seat numbers they will need to pay EGP 30 to get new ones.

Every year, nearly 600,000 students take the highly competitive exams in a number of subjects, at the end of their final year of high school.

Scores in the nationwide exams determine which university and faculty students go on to study at, and by extension the careers they can pursue.

Egypt's Education Minister Tarek Shawky said on Monday that paper exams will be replaced by electronic tests this year in an effort to improve the system and student evaluations, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported.

The minister said that the tests will be administered similarly to the English-language Toefl exams, adding that high schools will be sent the exams shortly before test dates to avoid leaks of questions.
