The zone decided to give average marks to the students on basis of results of previous semesters of the current academic year.

Dr Ayoub Badri, director of Dubai Education Zone, announced this.

He said after receiving complaints from certain quarters, the zone's administration formed committees which visited various checkers of the papers and found a big difference in the marks obtained by students in this semester as compared to previous ones.

Director of Dubai Education Zone was also surprised to see correct answers of the questions in possession of the students who came to meet him at his office. Parents of some students told the officials that their sons received the answers from some of their friends. After receiving these complaints the education zone cancelled the Islamic Education paper and provided new question papers to school administrations.

Dr Rashida Badri, Deputy Director of Dubai Education Zone for Private Education said she called managements of all 10 schools which follow American system to arrange fresh examination of Arabic language paper but a number of schools told her that most of their students had already left for holidays.
