Lebanon Announces End Of Academic Year, Cancels Official Exams Amid COVID-19

BEIRUT, The Lebanese cabinet agreed on Tuesday, to end the academic year for schools and cancel official exams, amid increases in COVID-19 infections in the country.

Students will take no official exams but continue their online education until the end of this month, it said.

Meanwhile, all students will pass their classes with certificates issued by their schools as proposed by Education Minister, Tarek Majzoub.

The academic year in Lebanon was disrupted on multiple occasions, with schools closing during the mass protests last Oct, and later as of Mar, in accordance with COVID-19 lock-down measures.

Several events that took place in Lebanon in the past few months, led to an unprecedented economic and financial crisis, which weighted heavily on living conditions of Lebanese citizens, who have become incapable of affording school tuition fees of their children.
