Students in Deir ez-Zor have sat down to take their exams for the high school certificate (Baccalaureate certificate), the first time since the siege on the city was lifted by the Syrian Arab Army in September.
Speaking to SANA, Head of the Education Directorate in Deir ez-Zor, Khalil Haj Abeid said that 5526 students in 54 exam centers across the city are taking the 12th grade exams, including literary and scientific branches, and that examination process is being conducted normally.
For their part, a number of the students expressed their satisfactions over the examination atmosphere, which differed from the previous years where an atmosphere of panic was dominating due to the terrorists’ shells.
Units of the Syrian Arab Army lifted the siege on Deir ez-Zor city in September 2017, establishing control over the city and the majority of its countryside after expelling Daesh (ISIS) from the province.
Various sectors, especially education have witnessed rapid action within the government, in an attempt to return life in Deir ez-Zor province to normal.
