Education Ministry to propose solutions to SAT crisis following exam cancellation

September 25, 2020

Original Article:

Minister of Education and Technical Education Tarek Shawky announced, in a special statement on Wednesday, that his ministry is looking for solutions to the crisis regarding the 2020 SAT exams.

Shawky noted that he was aware of all details regarding the cancellation of exams for American diploma students, and is now studying solutions with the responsible exam authority.

He asserted that his ministry will announce the measures to be taken to solve the problem by Thursday.

Earlier, the College Board, which administers the SAT tests, cancelled planned tests on 29 August in Egypt until June 2021, indicating that an early copy of this year’s SAT exam had leaked and were being offered for sale.

“Persistent test security incidents have led to repeated test administration cancellations, as well as score holds and cancellations, despite our implementing numerous additional security procedures,” the College Board said in a statement, “Due to these test security issues, we can not continue administering the SAT in Egypt at this time.”
