KUWAIT CITY, July 3: The parliamentary Human Resources Committee unanimously approved the proposal of MP Muhannad Al-Sayer to amend the recruitment regulations in the oil sector and ensure equality among applicants. The proposal stipulates the points for evaluating the applicants as follows: 10 percent for personal interview, 20 percent for language, 20 percent for graduation marks, and 50 percent for the intelligence quotient (IQ) exam that includes quantitative and verbal reasoning.

The proposal also stipulates the conditions upon recruitment; such as completion of a two-month training course, passing the exam at the end of every week (70 percent passing grade), and those who will fail will be given a chance to re-take the exams. The committee will refer the proposal to National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim for deliberation on July 8, 2022.

On the other hand, Chairman of the Education, Culture and Guidance Affairs Committee MP Hamad Al-Matar disclosed that the committee meeting scheduled for Wednesday will focus on the regulations concerning the overseas scholarships for secondary school graduates, especially those pursuing medical studies.

He said the senior officials at the Ministry of Higher Education are invited to discuss the issue with the committee, indicating they will look into the alleged discrimination of public school graduates as most of the excellent students who obtained 100 percent in the exams graduated from private schools. Moreover, Al-Ghanim sent cables to Speaker of the Council of the Republic of Belarus Natalya Kochanova and Speaker of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly Vladimir Andreichenko to greet them on the National Day of their country.
