External Examinations

In line with guidance from the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, all students are required to take their external examinations in the school in which they are registered. 

Qatar International School no longer accepts external candidates for the IGCSE, AS and A Level exams. This does not impact on any enrolled QIS student, who will take their examinations as normal. QIS students should not take external examinations at other examination centres or schools. 

Qatar International School is a Certified Examination Centre for Pearson Edexcel, Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) and the Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA). 

In line with Ministry of Public Health and Ministry of Education and Higher Education regulations, certain Covid-19 health and safety measures must be implemented during examinations: 

  1. ALL STUDENTS MUST WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES ENTERING EXAMINATIONS, DURING EXAMINATIONS AND WHEN LEAVING THE SCHOOL. 
  2. ALL STUDENTS MUST BRING ALL OF THEIR OWN EQUIPMENT – NOTHING WILL BE SUPPLIED BY THE SCHOOL, INCLUDING PENS. THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE. 
  3. ALL STUDENTS MUST NOTIFY THE SCHOOL IMMEDIATELY IF THEY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO A POSITIVE CASE OF COVID-19 THROUGH FAMILY OR FRIENDS WITHIN 14 DAYS OF SCHEDULED EXAMINATIONS.  
  4. IF STUDENTS HAVE ANY COVID-19 SYMPTOMS, THEY MUST NOTIFY THE SCHOOL AND SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE.
