Some 44 students from the Pakistan School Bahrain scored A+ and A grades at the annual Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Part-II examinations for the academic year 2021-22.
The examinations were conducted by the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE), an autonomous body responsible for testing students at Pakistani schools in and outside the country, and were taken by 123 students. The results were declared on August 3.
Amongst the achievers included Aisha Tariq, who secured top position in the school with 98.19 per cent marks (1,080 out of a total of 1,100). She was followed by Shahzadi Eman (97.18 per cent) and M Hamza Saleem (95.91 per cent) in second and third places respectively.
The FBISE resumed examinations after a long three-year pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The school Principal, Attiq ur Rehman, said a special event would be held to honour the students and their parents.
Meanwhile, Sami ur Rehman, Board of Management Chairman, announced scholarships and awards for the high-achieving students.
Pakistan School Bahrain was one of the first private schools in the country to have adopted remote teaching methods for uninterrupted schooling during the pandemic.
Exam-oriented teaching strategies were implemented with tests conducted at frequent intervals.
The student learning outcome (SLO) growth measurement tool was used for all monthly, mid-term, send up and pre-board examinations to help teachers measure student performance.
The students were given comprehensive guidance to familiarise them with SLO-based testing
Additionally, optical mark recognition (OMR) sheets and e-sheets were used in all these tests to acquaint students with them and to enable them to attempt the FBISE exams effectively. –Tradearabia News Service
