    Its a really helping for those seeking admission for their Kids here in Dubai. I am experiencing the problems regarding school selection and admission . It will be very helping if there is any analysis available for Abu Dhabi Schools also. I would also request ADEC through Gulf News about the admission procedures in Abu Dhabi Schools where we are not able to get even eaxct information when admissions are starting? and if form submitted or registered for admission, will admission be given?? as many schools are putting parents on wait till the school call them which never comes on most of cases.

    It is a good idea to rank schools. Many thanks for that. How about Sharjah's schools? Are you going to rank them also? I think the residents of Sharjah are also interested to know more about the schools in Sharjah. Regards.

    Sorry for Pakistani schools and the parents are wondering what to do about Pakistani children. Indian syllabus is not accepted in Pakistan, which would have been the best option otherwise.

    It's good beginning to rank schools in UAE. It helps parents to choose the best school for their kids. However, it may also create high demand for those top ranked schools, which may create increase in competition, which influences corruption within the system. Secondly, what are the parameters to rank them is very important.
