DUBAI: The Ministry of Education has approved the plan for the next academic year, 2018-2019, for the grades from kindergarten to grade 12, in public and private schools that follow the Ministry’s curricula.

The new plan featured some changes compared to the previous school year. The secondary stage will comprise four grades from 9th to twelfth. Meanwhile, the educational elite track has been expanded to include grades from the sixth to 12th. The Ministry also, for the first time, inserted the educational professional track that will include the grades 9-12.

The plan further included new amendments to the distribution of classes and all educational tracks. The number of classes for grades 6-12 has been increased to 40 in total a week, instead of 39, while the activity subjects will be integrated and renamed.

Furthermore, the plan stated that the number of mathematics classes will be increased to eight a week instead of six for all educational tracks.

The number of classes of the Islamic Education Subject will be decreased to two instead of three a week for the grades of 9, 10, 11, and 12.

The classes of the Arabic language subject will be increased from five to seven a week for the first and second grades.

The amendments also included addition of the Moral Education Subject to the curricula of the 10th, 11th and 12th grades, effective in the new school year (2018-2019), as previously it was only for the grades 1 to 9.
