A circular issued by the Department of Educational Information at the Ministry of Education has said.

The announcement was made following a Cabinet decision taken in 2003 abolishing commercial and agricultural education in the country, and assigning the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) to supervise technical education by the end of academic year 2004-2005.

The last chance for the students follows the leniency shown by the Minister of Education, Shaikh Nahyan bin Mubarak bin Nahyan, and the under-secretary of the ministry, for the students who failed in the exams for the Technical Secondary School Diploma (agriculture and business administration) in 2004-2005, and in the interest of their future.

Under the decision, the exemption will be for only one academic year, said the circular.

All students concerned are requested to report to their respective educational zones to duly complete the required formalities, and enable the zonal administration take necessary measures, the circular added.
