Education ministry announces dates of second semester midterm exams

By QLNews

Qatar’s Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE) yesterday announced the schedules of the second semester’s midterm exams for the 2020-2021 academic year for grades 1 to 11 in public schools as well as private schools that follow national standards.

The Ministry's Department of Student Assessment issued a circular stating that examinations will begin next week on Wednesday, February 24, 2021. They will go on until Thursday, March 11, 2021.

All exam schedules will be attached and published on the MoEHE's website, Qatar News Agency (QNA) reported.

Recently, the MoEHE announced that it has intensified its inspections and surprise visits at public and private schools to make sure the institutions are following the precautionary measures against COVID-19.

Officials from MoEHE’s health and safety department as well as from MoPH have been conducting these inspections.

Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) had issued the following tips for students taking their exams during the COVID-19 pandemic, a few months ago:

- Focus on your studies and avoid paying attention to rumors and bad news about COVID-19, especially from unreliable sources on social media platforms. 

- Manage your time effectively by establishing a schedule for studying and take 10-minute breaks while studying to boost your energy and concentration. 

- Avoid staying up late and ensure you sleep at least 8 hours a day. Having enough sleep is important for maintaining your health and strengthening your immune system.

- Eat a balanced, healthy diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables. Avoid excessive consumption of foods that are rich in fats and sugars. Do not skip your breakfast as it can help boost your concentration. It is also important to exercise regularly, as physical activity can help stimulate the learning process.  

- Avoid overconsumption of stimulants, such as tea and coffee, as they can lead to insomnia and poor concentration during exams.  

- Follow all COVID-19 precautionary measures. Avoid greeting your friends with handshakes or kisses and always maintain a distance of at least two meters between you and other people.

- Always wear a face mask and wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
