Ministry of Manpower cancels third semester

Muscat: The Ministry of Manpower has cancelled the third semester for the academic year 2019-2020, and advised students to keep themselves updated through official communication channels.
Under the new procedures, the process of assessment (final exams) for the second semester will be based on results of homework handed over during May 5-24, 2020 period in all technical colleges in accordance to the colleges' respective curricula.
Meanwhile, remaining short tests will be replaced by homework and reports to be delivered via email on electronic platforms used by the colleges.
The ministry also decided that summer vacation for “Foundation Year” students and “Specialisation Programme” students will begin on June 8, 2020 provided reports of graduation projects be posted by email on the technical colleges’ portals.
Evaluation of curricula of the Foundation Programme will be made after the start of study, said the Ministry.
