Sources said that the students would be promoted to the next class on the basis of the marks obtained last year. He added that last year, Class I-VII students were promoted on the basis of examinations, adding that records show that 90% of the students had passed.
The decision came as Grade I-VII students are set to return to Islamabad schools from Monday (tomorrow) after the government agreed to resume private classes.
The National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) has approved private classes after seeing a drop in corona virus cases in Pakistan's federal capital, according to a report published in The News.
Schools are already conducting 9-10 grade classes.
In a notification, the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE), which oversees public sector schools and colleges in Islamabad, said the schedule for Grade 1-8 examinations would be announced soon.
