ABU DHABI - Once more, girls outshine boys in the GSECE exams results
of which were endorsed by Minister of Education Dr. Hanif Hassan here
on Thursday. A total of 32,875 students sat for the exams including
20795 in the Art Section, 11746 in Science Section, and 334 in the
"The success per cent was 67.4pc for the Art section, 88.8pc for the
Science section, however the per cent of the Technical education was
80.33pc industrial high school, 75pc technical, 18.8pc for business
administration, 60pc for agriculture high school," the minister said at
a Press conference after endorsing the results. Girls scored 91.7 % in
the science section while boys scored 81.7pc. In Art Section girls
achieved 80pc, while boys scored 50.50.
Unveiling a new system to be introduced by his ministry, the minister
said: "The ministry seeks strictly to develop the examinations system
instead of the traditional as we have now, which help us to get an
accurate assessment for the students level as for the educational
outputs, the skills, and the acknowledgement," the Minister said. He
added, "Next days we will unveil the new system that will be based on
the assessment from the first day in the studying year not as the old
system that is based on the final exam to measure the students' level.
Moreover the system will include seasonal tests and two terms exams to
help us to assess the students learning fairly. In addition there will
be more activities for the students that give them the chance to create
and be innovative."
"The new system will be for all the education stages, and the whole
curriculums which will be in line with the international standards,"
the minister said. "I do not need a huge number of students to
succeed because if their level does not match their actual standard
they will face difficulties in the undergraduate stage. So if the
percent reached- with the new system - 10 percent and that reflect the
true performance of the students I would not have any reservation. And
we face a great challenge to revise and develop the educational
operation." Dr Hanif noted.
He said the ministry has a full obligation to change this reality
toward a better situation to make the students qualified to study
anywhere (locally or international). About the result, a national
commented: "The science section is high and very good especially for
girls whom scored high degrees as we were informed about the top 10
students on Thursday. But for the art section the percentage is not
good as we expected."
"We thank God for this marvelous result particularly that our school
(EL Moutanabi) has eight students among the top 10 this year, in
addition, 40pc of our students scored up to 90pc (around 80 of 200
students)." Mr Mohamed Saif, a physics teacher, said.
According to the ministry statistics, the Science section has total
11,746 students, 10,284 passed, the second roll 864, and 598 failed.
The Arts section has total 20,795 students, the passing number was
13,330 students, 3,871 failed, and the second roll 3,594 students. The
minister thanked the President, His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed
Al Nahayan, and His Highness Shaikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum
Vice-President Prime Minister, and the Ruler of Dubai, for their
support for education.
