Second phase of registration of students begins
The Ministry of Education and Higher Education resumed the second phase of the registration and transfer of students in public schools, which will continue until the end of next January to allow all students to register, especially those who have not been allowed to register during the past period, after the interruption of registration during the Eid Al Adha holiday.
The Department of Schools Affairs in the Ministry has issued a number of standards and documents for registration and transportation.
The registration and transfer of Qatari students is open according to the vacancies available.
The number of students is 33 in each division. This applies to non-Qatari students, with a maximum of 30 students in each division.
Enrollment in public schools includes new or incoming students from private schools or those from outside the country.
Students’ assessment policy regarding tests must be followed and the guardian must be informed before registration.
Meanwhile, the Department of Educational Guidance in the Ministry of Education and Higher Education is undertaking plans and programmes for the new academic year, while ensuring the provision of quality educational services to all parties in the educational process. The focus is on the quality of educational inputs as a guarantee for educational outcomes that achieve Qatar National Vision.
The Department has published on the Ministry’s website quarterly educational plans for learning resources for all subjects and all levels of education, including adult education.
Qatar started the new academic year on Sunday, with the Independent and private schools resuming classes after the long summer break bringing usual activity back to the city.
As many as 295,400 students in all government and private schools resumed their classes at the national level. About 113,400 students were in government schools at all levels while 182,000 students were in 265 private schools.
