Asset Talent Examination 2/3rd qualify

At Al Qamar, we focus strongly on the key foundational academic skills - reading, logical thinking, independent work. We don't have homework or exams. (Asset is the only exam they have) Kids get loads of play. And opportunities for self directed learning.

The strategy flies in the face of conventional thinking - but ironically shows success in the very areas held important by traditional schooling approaches - exam success!
