Al Yasmina School, part of Aldar Academies, one of the UAE's largest providers of world-class, private education, has upped its A-Level results from 2014 with this year's improved marks. The Adec B and A rated school has expanded its academic offering for the 2014/15 school year, with a more extensive choice of courses.
At the final year of A-level, around 40 per cent of students achieved A* to B and around 70 per cent achieved A* to C. As with last year, the pass rate in key subjects was 100 per cent. "It is encouraging to see more students achieving A* to C, as well as the fact that the very high pass rate across all subjects has been maintained," said Dr. Tim Hughes, Yasmina's Principal. "The results are a credit to the students' hard work, as well as the dedication of both their parents and the staff at Yasmina. The improvements from last year are commendable."
In biology, chemistry, design technology drama, geography, psychology and physical education, Yasmina students at A-level achieved significantly higher than students doing the same examinations internationally. Moreover, Yasmina has excelled in the areas of Arabic and Islamic education, where students achieved a 100 per cent pass rate. This is a direct result of a considerable focus on Adec's Arabic and Islamic studies requirements.
Yasmina students' highest marks are in the sciences - biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. "In the sciences students have exceeded the results of international and UK students, which is a particularly encouraging outcome, because at Yasmina we endeavour to instill technological and scientific skills that truly prepare students for life in the 21st century," said ," Dr. Hughes.
