An analytical study prepared by the Ministry of Education (MoE) on the
final results of grade-12 students showed a surge in the average score of
students in the general, advanced and elite streams for the academic year
2019-2020 compared to the previous academic year 2018-2019.
The evaluation weights and ratios for the three semesters were
compatible with the evaluation policy, which has been adopted for 4 years now.
There was no change in the evaluation weights and ratios for each semester as
recently circulated on social media.
According to the MoE-conducted study, the average score of general
stream students surged by 7.56 per cent to 71.99 per cent for the academic year
2018-2019 and to 77.43 per cent for the past academic year 2019-2020.
As for the advanced stream, the average score of students surged by 3.43
per cent to 84.48 per cent for the academic year 2018-2019 and to 87.82 per
cent for the academic year 2019-2020.
In the elite stream, however, the average score of students surged by
2.94 per cent to 91.23 per cent for the academic year 2018-2019 and to 93.91
per cent for the academic year 2019-2020.
This surge in the average score of students reflected the students’
efforts, perseverance and keenness on achieving excellence. It is also the
fruit of the approved evaluation methodology, which is based on learning measurement
and not on performance measurement.
Improvement options, whether in the final ratios or in meeting the
minimum success rate, still remain through the smart summer classroom program,
which was approved by the MoE as an opportunity for students to make up for the
shortage for the ultimate goal of supporting students academically and motivating
them to continue learning.
We thank parents, students and teachers for their key role in investing
time and efforts for achieving positive results as embodied in acquiring
skills, achieving the expected educational outcomes and consequently making
significant progress in students’ rates and grades.
