Algeria has turned off its Internet to stop students cheating in exams. The Internet stops after the exams start. This is happening during the exam season, which ends June 25. Also, devices with Internet access are banned from exam halls. Even teachers cannot have their phones. In 2016, test questions were leaked online.

Facebook has been blocked for the days of the exams. For extra security, metal detectors are now in all exam halls. Security cameras and mobile-phone blockers are in the companies where exams are printed. Students like the government's actions. One said it was unfair that students could cheat by using phones.
