Palestinians across the occupied Palestinian lands have been celebrating after high school exam results were released on Thursday, 20 July 2023.
Results of the final year exams were released this morning by the Ministry of Education. Some 68647 Palestinian students sat the Tawjihi exams, also known as General Secondary Education Certificate Examination, in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Jerusalem 26405 of them passed, the ministry revealed.
Palestinians in Gaza were particularly jubilant as their grades reflect their ability to overcome adversity and the electricity shortages – as a result of Israel’s 15-year siege – to complete their studies and attain top grades.
Students can now enroll in university for further education.
