In recent news, “Thanaweya Amma” students reported a question in their exam that did not have a correct answer.
Students claimed that the question on the exam asked them for the plural of the word “haleeb” (milk), and there is no plural for this word in the Arabic nor English languages. Students were furious after the exam, arguing that there cannot be a question on an exam with no correct answer.
But was this question even on the exam?
The strange thing about this situation is that the Minister of Education, Tarek Shawki, denied that the question ever existed on Amr Adib’s television program. He refuted the student’s claims and said that this was not a question on their exam.
Amr Adib himself said that he saw the exam and that the question wasn’t on it. He believes that the students made up the question due to being extremely upset over how hard the exam was.
The question here is, is this the case where the students really stressed out enough from the exam to make up questions that weren’t there? Or is this another case of the phenomenon “the Mandela Effect”?
Many people might ask, what is the Mandela Effect?
The Mandela Effect is a strange phenomenon where people all remember something differently than what actually happened. These people genuinely believe they saw something or are confident that an event occurred when it did not.
When did people start noticing the Mandela Effect?
It all started when a woman named Fiona Broome was at a conference, and she was talking to others about how she recollected Former South African President Nelson Mandela’s death. According to her, he died in prison back in the 1980s, even though this was not the case, and President Mandela died in 2013. The weird thing was that the people at the conference seemed to remember it the same way she did.
They all remembered him dying in the 1980s in prison and that there was news coverage of the tragedy. But, in reality, this did not happen. Instead, Mandela died in December of 2013.
Here you can find 40 of the most common Mandala effect in history!
Are the “Thanaweya Amma” Students Experiencing a Case of the “Mandela Effect”?
Could this possibly be what the “Thanaweya Amma” students are experiencing, and could this be another case of the Mandela Effect? It very well might be that the students aren’t “making up” questions on the exam, but they really do remember it being there.
It could be that both the students and the Minister of Education, alongside Amr Adib, are all telling their own versions of what they believe is the truth.
