Adam and Nora's exam results are in.

Adam passed!!! And from what he and his friends say, he is the top of his school. I don't know if he is pulling my leg or not. I told Mustafa to go to the school and check, but he said 'If they are saying that then it's true - end of story.' Adam hasn't been top student in quite a few years - but this is his first year in high school and a new school for him too. I hope it will be a continuing trend!

Nora failed math. She knew she was going to and has been studying while she waited for her exam results. She came straight home from checking on her results and opened her books again. Because she has been realistic about this I have told her she can take the resit exam to see if she can pass. Of course Sara had a fit because I won't let her take resit exams. She hasn't put in any effort to study since she found out she failed, so I told her the rule will stand - no resits for Sara.

I'm not sure when the second exams will be. In the mean time Nora is stuck at home with her books. And I imagine that she will use this as an excuse not to do anything at all around the house.

Other news - Mustafa found some very nice marble for the kitchen and has also found some interesting light fixtures he wants me to have a look at. I feel like we are finally getting somewhere!


  1. Congratulations to those who passed ! When is the thaltah i3dadi result out ? I have a cousing i need to congratulate inshallah.

  2. Congrats...wow you are one strict & firm mama... In malaysia, we do not have re-sit exams except for the major exams ie o & a levels. they can either sit for maths or the malay language paper which is held in july every year hence it's called July paper. or the can resit all subjects. so, they are categorized as private candidates.

    I hope you don't mind me asking, do your children speak Arabic?

  3. Not sure when the exam results will be out. . . .

    Yep, the kids speak Arabic - consider it their first language

  4. amelia failed math last year... we wanted her to do summer school, but she chose to redo the whole course this year (grade 10)... hopefully she will pass this time... exams started this week.
