How stable is the currency rate?


I’m not an economist but I have been told this is something that could severely affect my finances over there seeing as Im on a tight budget. Is there a peak season that I should exchange or does it remain pretty stable

When I went to Egypt to study in June 2010 for £1 I was getting 8.38 Egyptian pounds but when I left in June 2011 I was getting 9.77 Egyptian Pounds. My other friends went about 5 years ago and said they used to get 13 Egyptian pounds for £1 so it does drop and fall and it does affect your finances however in regards to studying some centers request you pay in dollars which may be better for you.
