Dubai: Students in the UAE on Tuesday morning started receiving teacher-assessed results for A-levels, whose summer session exams were cancelled this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The UK curriculum boards for A-levels — taken in Year 13 at the end of high school — this year awarded grades based on teachers’ assessment of students, using graded school-level exams and coursework, which were signed off by head teachers before being submitted to the boards.
UAE-based pupils joined peers in other countries on Tuesday to receive their grades individually, after they were released to schools a day earlier on Monday.
