The Director of the National Assessment and Examinations Center thanked the administrators and coordinators of the examination centers for organizing the examinations and the work done in the past years. She wished each of them success in this year’s exams:
Some of you have been able to do the impossible during the pandemic, these very difficult 2 years – I appreciate it very much and thank you for that. I would especially like to wish success to those who will be an administrator or a coordinator for the first time this year, as they will make a significant contribution to the examination process. We have up to 90 thousand applicants in 2022 – this number is unprecedented in the history of the Center. This time too, our main task is to make each examinee feel that we have created an appropriate, decent exam environment for them after the exams are over. I believe that together we will achieve a common goal.
