Introduction

In Grades 11 and 12, students are studying the General Education Diploma (GED). The programme is created by the Ministry of Education for Bilingual schools. Students in Grades 11 and 12 study 9 subjects; 6 of these subjects are compulsory and 3 of them are optional. All students must successfully pass 9 subjects in order to obtain The General Education Diploma Certificate.

 

The compulsory subjects are: Arabic Language, Islamic Education, Social Studies, English, Mathematics and one science subject (Biology, Chemistry or Physics). The optional subjects are: Information Communication Technology, Business study, Physical Education (compulsory for Boys), Fine Arts, Physics, Biology, Chemistry and English Literature.

 

The Arabic Language, Islamic Education and Social Studies courses are the same as the courses taught in other government schools. The syllabi of other subjects are designed by the Ministry of Education based on AS and A levels.

 

In Grade 11, the students’ knowledge, skills and understanding are assessed internally by the school.

 

In Grade 12; Islamic, Arabic, Social Studies, English, Mathematics, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, and English Literature; 30% of the grade is based on continuous assessments conducted by the school and 70% is based on the written exam conducted by the Ministry of Education. For Fine Arts, Information Communication Technology (ICT), Business Studies and Physical Education, 70% of the grade is based on the internal assessments and the final exams accounts for 30%.

 

The GED programme provides students with opportunities to learn, develop and apply skills in evaluating, interpreting, and problem solving.
