The Noval CoronaVirus Outbreak has created Havoc which resulted in the closure of both the Educational Institutes and Businesses. Students in Pakistan are already DONE with the Online Classes, and in the meantime, Government and HEC are thinking about Examination of University Students! HEC Chairman is Considering Different Options for University Examinations.
At the beginning of the Outbreak of Noval CoronaVirus, all Educational Institutes were ordered to close to avoid the spread of Noval CoronaVirus. Students were quite angry with Online Class and #ResignChairmanHEC also started trending on Twitter and it was a sight to remember. However, now, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) is looking over different options to try and hold the university examinations this year.
HEC’s Statement Regarding Delays in Exams
Speaking on a talk show, Tariq Banuri, Chairman HEC laid out several options that are under consideration. He stated, ”Let me clear one thing that this is like a wartime situation and the enemy has attacked us. Our attitude in all this is that whatever decisions are in our hands, we take and whatever is in others’ hands, we look at them.”
”We look towards the government, the hospitals, the experts to let us know about the safe time to ease or lift the lockdown, etc. In the meantime, till the issue persists, we have started alternative arrangements. When we began doing that, the students got aggressive and we are trying to calm them down. It has been handled to some extent and we are positive that we’ll control other things till 30th, 31st May”, he added.

HEC Chairman is Considering Different Options for University Examinations
Emphasizing on May end, Banuri said, ”If things get better till the end of May, then also we can approach the government to permit universities to at least open for exams. For that, we’ll provide data to experts so that they can analyze if its safe or not because we are not experts. So, if it comes to 31st May, then we can give relaxation in some areas otherwise we will have two to three solutions.”
”On the same note, we’ll schedule the exams after July 15th so that the students can be easily notified about the new pattern. If that also doesn’t happen, then we’ll move towards the online examination system. It’s totally different from the physical one. But we haven’t prepared any final policy yet. We’ll discuss its pros and cons with the Vice-Chancellors’ on coming Tuesday”, he concluded.
Some Sections of Students are Happy with the Latest Progress and Some are not as they believe that Online Classes didn’t do much to be given exams later on!
So, What Do You Think About it?
