Around 20 Indian schools have requested that students appear in person for written exams in May, local media reported.

Along with some American and British schools, the Indian schools are linked to internationally accredited bodies that require specific evaluation mechanisms for the students in order for them to pass the school year.


Currently, Kuwait has barred all educational institutions, schools and universities, from conducting in-person tests or exams due to the pandemic.

A source told media the Indian embassy had requested the schools be given approval for in-person exams, otherwise students will need to travel to India to write them. Between the 20 schools requesting in-person exams, there are a total of approximately 8,000 students.

A delegation of international schools will be discussing the matter with the Ministry of Education. The source added that the schools are fully committed to adhering to all regulations.

All schools, pre-schools and universities were closed on March 12, 2020 over growing concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Since the beginning of the 2020-2021 academic year, all educational institutions have been conducting classes online.

The only schools that were given the green light to operate to have in-person lessons are schools for children with special needs, who resumed classes on December 20.
