Oman Bilingual GED Programme
The Oman Bilingual GED programme delivers a broad range of subjects and supports the development of additional languages, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills - all of which are highly valued by employers.
As a high-quality programme, the GED qualification also fulfils entry requirements for universities in Oman and overseas. Students may choose which subject to major in for the duration of the course.

Internal government scholarships for Oman universities are available for Omani students and as a national programme, the bilingual GED course also offers a wider choice of subjects, which can be helpful for students who are unsure of which area they wish to pursue at university.
GED Grading System
The Ministry of Education in Oman publishes the official Oman Bilingual GED grading system each year. GED students will receive grades ranging from A-E, with A being the highest possible grade. Students are required to achieve a Grade D or above in each subject to pass the course and be awarded the Diploma.
Requirements to Study the Oman Bilingual GED
Entry for the Oman Bilingual GED is reliant on requirements set by the school. To qualify for the course, prospective students must pass a minimum of four subjects at the IGCSE level. With the exception of Arabic, Islamic Studies and Social Studies, all GED subjects are taught in English; therefore, students are must demonstrate a proficient level of English speaking, writing and reading. Prospective GED students will also be asked to sit an English language assessment before being offered a place.
GED Teaching Staff
Each member of our GED teaching staff is native to the UK and speaks fluent English. Although all of our teachers gained their qualifications in Great Britain, many have been based in Oman for several years. Therefore, they have significant experience delivering the Oman Bilingual GED course material. This means that students receive the best-quality instruction from subject specialists who demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of the GED curriculum and exam standards.
Our Arabic teachers are equally well qualified. Each teacher holds a Bachelor's degree in their field of specialisation and delivers lessons in classical Arabic. As standard, all GED teachers attend regular Ministry of Education training workshops to ensure they are informed of updates and changes to the syllabus.
