The NSC is chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Hishammuddin said preliminary preparations had been arranged from the aspects of accommodating the Malaysian students in Cairo, Tanta right up to Alexandria and taking them out at any time, if necessary.
"The NSC and the embassy itself had met with our students and had assured them that the Malaysian government will do whatever is necessary for their safety," he said.
He said that so far, Malaysian students had not been brought home as they were sitting for the examinations up to Aug 8.
"They would have to repeat their study for another year and resit for the examination next year if they were brought home now," he said.
