The number of candidates for the baccalaureate exams for the 2022 session has increased by 8%, revealed Chakib Benmoussa, Minister of National Education, Preschool and Sports, on Thursday in Rabat.

The Moroccan minister assured, in a presentation he delivered during the Council of Government held under the chairmanship of Head of Government Aziz Akhannouch, that all measures have been taken to make sure national examinations take place in transparency, integrity and equal opportunity.

These measures concern spaces dedicated to printing and photocopying, in addition to the exam sheets transfer from distribution centers to examination centers.
