UAE: Schools can hold only one exam per day


No school in Sharjah is allowed to conduct more than one exam per day, the authorities have said after a complaint from a parent reached HH Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of the Emirate.

“Students won’t be able to focus as they have to study for two exams. This affects their grades negatively, and they are afraid of failing the exams,” a concerned mother complained on a Sharjah Radio programme.

Responding to the complaint, Sheikh Dr. Sultan immediately directed the Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA) to speak to the school.
