Some schools in Dubai are hiring external trainers and special coaches to teach revision strategies and skills to students ahead of their examinations.
This comes as many schools in Dubai are already gearing up for mid-term exams that begin next week.
Principals explain teaching instructional strategies to relieve pressure help put students in a much better position in time for exams.
Many principals highlight the easing of Covid restrictions and uncovered faces have revitalized academic experiences in schools.
Headteachers say this academic year has been quite busy so far, with the experience much closer to the normality of the pre-Covid days than was the case in the last two years.
Nav Iqbal, Principal/CEO, GEMS Metropole School – Motor City, says, “In our school, we aim to equip students on how to revise and prepare for examinations as much as we teach the subject knowledge within each lesson. A recent example of this is offering training on revision techniques for our secondary students through a specialist external consultant. Investing in such events gives students access to practical guidance that will raise their achievement while at the same time reducing their exam anxiety.”
