The MATSEC Examinations Board regrets the choice of text that candidates were required to translate for their SEC Arabic examination due to the sensitivity of the subject matter.
MATSEC assures candidates that the members of the SEC Arabic examination panel were selected based on their subject knowledge and experience in the level.
In the setting of the papers, the panel ensures that the examination is in line with the syllabus and caters to candidates of different abilities. MATSEC has a review system in place to avoid such situations but unfortunately, mistakes, including errors of judgement, may occur.
MATSEC guarantees candidates that this unfortunate incident will not have any impact on their grade.
