KARACHI: The chairman's inter-board committee has expressed reservations over the policy decision taken by education ministers to conduct examinations in elective subjects only, sources told Geo News. These concerns were shared during an IBCC meeting chaired by Dr. Shaukat Hayat, which discussed preparations for the upcoming exams in Karachi. Sources said that the IBCC members questioned the logic behind the new policy and asked how they would determine the grades of students on the basis of two optional matriculation subjects.
Now all the provinces will decide on a formula in their board meetings. It is likely that the Sindh Education Board will meet in the next two days. IPEMC has finalized the examination schedule On Wednesday, Federal Minister for Education and Vocational Training Shafqat Mahmood said that the closure of schools due to COVID-19 epidemic diseases has reduced the educational disadvantage of students and reduced the matriculation and intermediate level curriculum. ۔
Addressing a press conference after the Inter-Provincial Ministerial Education Conference (IPEMC) was held at the Higher Education Commission, he said that the examinations for the ninth and tenth classes would be conducted in only four elective subjects. Similarly, Mahmood said, Class 11 and 12 examinations will also be in elective subjects only and the rest of the subjects will not be examined.
