In coordination with the Ministry of Interior and the General Directorate of Traffic, several adjustments have been made to the operation of educational activities on May 15 and 16, 2024. Here’s what you need to know!

Dedicated study days for all educational stages

Wednesday and Thursday have been announced as designated study from home days for students across all educational stages, providing them an opportunity to prepare for any upcoming examinations that are set to take place.

Any final exams that were set to take place on these dates, will be rescheduled, with the revised dates announced soon by the ministry.

Private schools have been encouraged to make necessary arrangements as well

Both government and private higher education institutions have been encouraged to adjust their schedules to accommodate the traffic plan that’s been put in place, and facilitate the smooth functioning of the Arab Summit.

Educational institutions associated with international exams from external entities are exempt from these adjustments if rescheduling is not feasible.

Attendance for these exams remains mandatory at the designated times, with alternative routes specified by the Ministry of Interior to ease transportation challenges. Students will resume classes and exams, as regular, on Sunday, May 19.
