Today, over 3 million Saudi students will sit final exams of intermediate and secondary schools across the Kingdom.
“We have made preparations for the smooth operation of the examinations,” said Muhammad Al-Dokhaini, Education Ministry spokesman. A team of supervisors and experts has been appointed across the Kingdom.
He said students would be able to know the results through Noor electronic services. Results of intermediate schools will be out on June 3 and secondary schools on June 8. Results of Class 3 secondary students would be available on June 10.
Al-Dokhaini said the electronic service was instrumental in the early announcement of results, adding that it would help students complete procedures for higher studies at Saudi and foreign universities.
Information of secondary school graduates will be passed on to Saudi universities through the electronic service this year, beginning from June 15, he said.
