The UAE’s Ministry of Education has done away with exams for all private schools that follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum for the year 2020-2021.

They have, instead, approved an alternative system that uses internal tests and teacher assessments.

The non-exam assessment was introduced last November following changes to the schooling schedule by the pandemic.
