Currently, year 9 students are required to submit the initial draft for the subjects they would like to take for IGCSE. Likewise, year 11 students will be choosing their subjects for sixth form. Thus this event is key in ensuring the right subjects are chosen for the right College.

The GES College Fair grants a beneficial opportunity not only to its own students but also to students from other schools in the Doha region.
