The third semester starts today, in public and private schools

The Education Institution has set a time frame for the make-up exams.


Today, government and private schools, which implement the Ministry of Education curriculum, will resume studying in the third and last semester of the current academic year for all grades with the 100% attendance system, while students from the third to twelfth grade, who are absent with an excuse from the exams of the second semester, take compensatory exams today. .

School administrations confirmed their readiness to resume studies after the spring break, taking into account the precautionary measures and the protocol for the return of students to the classroom in force, placing the organization of educational and awareness programs in the month of Ramadan as a priority and implementing them as of the first day, to maintain the health and safety of the educational field.

The director of public schools stated that they had received a circular from the Emirates Foundation for School Education to transfer the in-person study to the "distance education" system on Fridays during the holy month of Ramadan, in the remainder of the holy month, and this includes students and all staff working in schools.

School principals, who preferred not to be named, demanded to “Emirates Today” the continuation of the distance education system on Fridays throughout the school year, because students do not study more than four hours per day, which is a short period, and requires moving buses to transport students, Improperly wasting time.
