Students taking the Emirates Standardised Test (EmSAT) must have a negative Covid-19 (PCR) test result, the Ministry of Education has announced.

The test should have been taken within seven days of the exam and should reflect on the AlHosn app.

In case a student had tested positive for Covid, the applicant has to provide two negative test results when registering, the statement added.

EmSAT is a set of standardised electronic tests for measuring and evaluating students. Applicants take the test for college admission and placement.
