The Thanaweya Amma applied math (dynamics) exam was leaked Saturday morning for the second time in one week, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported.

According to Al-Ahram, the questions and answers were leaked on Facebook pages only minutes after the exam started at 9am.

Saturday’s applied math final exam was a re-sit after it was voided last week following its leak five hours before the exam began.

According to Al-Ahram, the exams were printed and secured by “sovereign entities” after the education ministry failed to secure examination procedures in the past weeks.

On Wednesday, high school students held protests in several parts of the country against a cabinet decision to cancel or postpone a number of year-end exams after several test questions and answers were leaked online.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi said in a speech at an iftar celebration following the protests that the leaks would not be repeated, stressing that Egypt was currently reconsidering the system of high school exams.
