Abu Dhabi: UAE’s Education and Human Resources Council has approved the end-of-the-year results for the 2023-2024 academic year for government schools and the criteria for promotion.

The criteria include holding re-examinations for applicable cases once at the end of the academic year. The results will undergo a rigorous review and audit by specialised teams to uphold fairness.
