Fawzia al-Khater, assistant undersecretary for Educational Affairs at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, has visited ScorePlus Qatar to meet the Qatar School of Science and Technology’s inaugural class.

The students have nearly completed a joint training programme between the ministry and ScorePlus, a well-known education training provider affiliated to The Princeton Review, US.

ScorePlus, in collaboration with the ministry, is preparing 80 candidate students (of whom 60 will be shortlisted) in mathematics and science reasoning to support Qatar’s aim of furthering its

world-class educational system in STEM courses, according to a press statement.

Qatar School of Science and Technology is scheduled to open at the beginning of the 2018/2019 academic year. It is a secondary school for boys and includes grades 9 to 12. The candidates will be selected from the eighth grade students who are excellent in science and mathematics.

The school aims at providing a high level of education in line with the development of the education sector in developed countries, in order to graduate students who have the scientific basis that ensures enrolment in the top universities in the world, the statement noted.

ScorePlus senior faculty member and programme manager Steven A Williams extended his wishes for the future success of the students, who will play a vital role in Qatar’s future.

Addressing the students, al-Khater said the aim of the programme is to enrich students with the knowledge and skills to assure them access to top universities across the globe and shape a generation of researchers, inventors and thinkers in Qatar.

Further, speaking to ScorePlus’ country head Pradeep Singhal, she expressed appreciation and satisfaction with the instructional quality provided to the candidates and thanked ScorePlus’ teachers and operational staff for developing and implementing the training programme.
