In this return to the two Palestinian schools, tension builds as the end-of-year exam season gets underway.
Straight away Da'es Abu Kishik, headteacher of King Talal boys school, and his staff are arguing over the latest directive from the Education Ministry concerning exam timetables.
The students too are feeling the pressure. Osaid Salami spent many months in an Israeli jail earlier in the year and this gap in his education means the exams are even more of a challenge for him.
Meanwhile, at Hajja Rushda girl's school there is a different kind of pressure as students like Lina Haddad push to achieve top marks.
All this amid over-crowded classes and yet more students imprisoned by the Israeli army, show the day to day struggles faced by a school living under an occupation.
This series has been filmed exclusively from one perspective. You might be interested in two other programmes, Little Peace of Mine and Inspirations - Oasis of Peace, that explore how education is being used to build bridges between the Israelis and Palestinians.
