Abu Dhabi to test new curriculum

Abu Dhabi Education Council (Adec) is to start testing a new curriculum with less compulsory subjects in 2012, The National has reported. The revamped curriculum, which has been cut from 13 to a maximum of seven compulsory subjects in the last three years, will go on trial in selected secondary schools in Abu Dhabi next September. It will also offer a vocational stream for non-academically inclined pupils in Grades 10, 11 and 12, Adec said.
