It has been announced by the federal government that the board exams won’t occur for the secondary and higher secondary classes this year. Students are going to be promoted on the idea of the average marking system. Also, those that want to require admissions in universities will get it on the basis of the latest eligibility criteria.
It was announced by the Federal Minister for Education, Shafqat Mehmood that the govt cannot risk the gathering of hundreds and thousands of students at different exam centers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Keeping in mind that the security of students and teachers, it’s been decided by the govt to cancel the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th exams for the educational year 2019-20. Based on the average marking system, students will get promoted to succeeding classes. Keeping into consideration their results in previous classes they’re going to be evaluated.
Also, students of 12th grade who want to get into universities will get admission to the criteria of their 11th results. the 1st year results of those students are going to be used as a benchmark for his or her admission to universities. But every university can set its own weightage for it. To prove their eligibility for the seats, students must undergo different universities’ independent entry tests.
Mehmood said that this decision is taken for many of the students, confessing that there are issues in it. However, the government remains working on the details of this decision. they’re going to find how and compute a solution for college kids who failed in subjects in 1st year and wished to boost their marks this year.
