Some lazy students have started sharing the news that the official exams won’t take place this year but they are wrong. The exam schedule signed on November 17, 2018, by the minister of secondary education, remains the same.
The first exam to take place is the national vocational qualification (BEP) on May 2, 2018. Next, comes the entrance exams on May 15. Following this, the Certificate of Professional Competence in industrial crafts will be held before the Junior high school certificate exam which will start on June 4. The practical examinations for the baccalaureate will start on May 22 right before the probationary on June 19 and so on…
By any way, the exams schedule doesn’t coincide with the election schedule. The senatorial election will be held on March 25, 2018, before the Easter break. The municipal and legislative elections will probably be held in September and the presidential in October. That being said, some people have always claimed that the examiners are tolerant during election periods.
