UAE: Alternative Assessments Approved For Some Schools

Alternative systems to examinations have been approved by the UAE Ministry of Education for all private schools that follow the curriculum of International Baccalaureate (IB), for the academic year of 2020-2021 

This system was used back in November when Covid-19 has been announced as a pandemic.

The Ministry of Education had earlier said the assessment methods would be applicable for schools that follow the British and IB curriculums.

The ministry said the step “reflects the confidence in private international schools to prepare or adopt solid evaluation methodologies”.
