Hence, each branch will have to discuss its individual case with Fouad Ayoub, the President of the Lebanese University, keeping in mind that the lives of the students are the highest priority, the minister explained.
With that said, the official noted that performing online exams is not a viable option in this case and the upcoming exams will need to be undergone under “exceptional procedures” instead.
“[Fouad] Ayoub assured that all necessary health measures will be taken to protect the students, and we must trust each other and the health measures in order to succeed,” he advised.
Ultimately, all decisions in that regard, including what happens if a student chooses not to attend the final exams, can only be made by the university’s officials, Al-Majzoub declared.
He concluded, “I am only a trusteeship minister; I do not replace the director, dean, or president of the university, I state the advisable data that I have and recommend that it be followed.”
