RIYADH — Nearly six million male and female students sat for the final examinations for the second semester of the current academic year, in all academic levels of public education, starting from the third grade of elementary schools to the third grade of secondary schools.

The written exams for the final of the second semester started on Sunday and they will continue through five days in public education schools for boys and girls in the regions and governorates across the Kingdom.

The Ministry of Education, represented by the Student Guidance Departments, has initiated providing telephone consultation services by specialists in the educational and psychological fields. This is aimed at supporting male and female students in response to their inquiries related to exams, as well as to prepare them psychologically to achieve the best results and academic excellence. This is at the same time valuing the efforts of school administrations and their educational and administrative cadres in preparing early to conduct exams, finish their work, and announce results on time.

The Ministry of Education follows up on the preliminary examination reports issued by the education departments to ensure that the examinations proceed as planned. It emphasized the importance of schools completing the correction, revision, and monitoring works in the Noor Electronic Management System on a daily basis, in preparation for announcing the results immediately upon completion of the exams by the end of next Thursday’s school hours.

The Noor solution is designed to increase the efficiency of the educational process, increase the efficiency of administrators and teachers and provide a centralized database that ensures a rapid exchange of information, time, effort, and resources. Noor serves more than 10 million users, including six million students and half a million teachers working in over 40,000 public and private schools in the Kingdom. The innovative educational system “Noor” offers a wide range of e-services to teachers, students, administrators, school administrators, regulators, and parents.

The education departments across the Kingdom have formed from an early stage a number of supervisory committees across the education offices to organize the work of the exams. They called on supervisors and principals of schools to beef up field visits to schools during the period of the exams, follow up on the supervision of their progress, provide psychological support to students, and help them overcome any challenges that they may face during exams.
