HE the Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr Mohamed bin Abdul Wahed Ali al-Hammadi has issued a decision amending some provisions of Ministerial Decision No 21 on the annual calendar for the academic year 2017-18.
The decision set the second term examinations date for Grade 1 to 3 to be from May 8 to 15, 2018, Grade 4 to 9 from May 20 to 31, 2018, Grade 10 and 11 from May 22 to June 7, 2018, and Grade 12 from May 21 to June 6, 2018.
The decision also set the dates for the second stage exams for the academic year, scheduling them from June 25 to July 2, 2018 for Grade 1 to 9 and from July 24 to August 2, 2018 for Grade 10 to 12.
The Ministry of Education and Higher Education said examinations schedule has been adjusted after extensive study, in co-ordination with the Advisory Committee for School Principals and the Advisory Committee for Teachers, for the benefit of students and parents.
The ministry said that according to the amendment, the students of early education will complete their exams before Ramadan, while exams of the other classes have been advanced during the holy month, increasing the rest days during the examinations, especially for the secondary stage, giving students more opportunity to prepare for the tests.
The amendment of examinations schedule for Grade 1 to 9 from June 25 to July 2, has been done keeping in mind the school period, as staff leave will start from July 8, and therefore there will be no need for the opening of examination centres.
