Students at SABIS® Network Schools in Kurdistan Excel on Cambridge KET
Grade 6 students from five SABIS® Network schools in Kurdistan recently received their results on the Cambridge Key English Test (KET), which assesses students’ English proficiency in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. And they excelled!
Of the 120 students who sat for the exam in May 2015, 93% passed, with 23% passing with merit and 28% passing with distinction. The sixth graders are students from two private SABIS® Network schools – the International School of Choueifat–Erbil, the International School of Choueifat–Suleimaniah – and three SABIS® PPP schools – Fakhir Merghasori International School, Sarwaran International School, and Sardam International School in Erbil, Kurdistan.
“We are very pleased with the results,” stated Liezl Kleynhans, Regional Academic Quality Controller of the SABIS® Regional Center in Kurdistan. “For the vast majority of our students, English is not their mother tongue. Achieving these results is a reflection of the high level of English proficiency reached by students in SABIS® Network schools.”
Contributing to the students’ outstanding performance on the KET was a challenging English curriculum and frequent internal assessments designed to monitor student progress and performance. Further contributing to the students’ preparedness were mock exams that exposed students to the array of questions they would be asked during the actual and provided valuable practice in sustaining long periods of concentration.
