The 10th grade national exam is a key milestone for students entering the 11th grade in high school across Ethiopia. The score on the exam determines whether students enter into a vocational or university track for 11th and 12th grades.
IIE’s goal is for 100% of students in the IIE Higher Education Readiness Program (HER) to enter the university track. To prepare the HER students for the exam, IIE has initiated intensive after school tutoring in those subject areas covered by the National Exam. Working closely with the Addis Ketema and Fitawrari Abayneh high schools, the tutoring will complement and enhance classroom instruction and provide HER students with the opportunity to practice taking the exam.
See our Flickr stream for a look at new photos showing some of the HER students during tutoring sessions. IIE also held meetings with parents this week to introduce them to the HER program and the student’s requirements.
Stay tuned for more information about those meetings.
