Shafqat Mehmood Issues Clarification on Matric & Intermediate Exams.

Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood on Thursday announced,

“The board exams in Pakistan will commence after June 15, adding that priority will be given to intermediate and matriculation exams. Interprovincial Education Ministers Conference (IPEMC) took place yesterday. It was decided that Board exams would begin after June 15. Intermediate and Matric exams would be given priority so that results can come in before university admissions.”

The decision is taken to normalize the education system in the country. Moreover, members of the IPEMC already rejected the suggestion to promote students of grades 9 and 11. They also gave their approval to hold the exams as scheduled in July.  

The minister revealed that the government will give priority to exams for grades 12 and 10 followed by grades 11 and 9. 

A day earlier, the minister had said intermediate examinations in the country would be held after June 15.

“The coronavirus situation was getting better in the country due to vaccinations and other steps taken by the government. I am very hopeful about holding examinations. Only A-2 examinations were being held across the country, but several people were voicing their demands to be awarded school-assessed grades. If examinations do not take place then no one will study — and that is why the (O/A- level) exams — that have been postponed — will be conducted in October and November.”

Last month, as the COVID-19 cases rose, Mehmood and Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Health Dr. Faisal Sultan had announced that as per the recommendation of the National Command and Operation Centre, all board exams had been on hold till June 15.

May Allah keep all of us safe and secure.
