Saeed Ghani Clarifies No Student Will Be Promoted Without Exams
Sindh Education Minister, Saeed Ghani has clarified that students will not be promoted appearing in the exams this year. According to the directives issued by the national committee and command center schools for the students of grades 9 to 12 have been reopened as they have to appear in the annual board exams. However, the primary schools and the universities will be reopened on 1st February 2021 after reviewing the situation of the coronavirus pandemic in the country. He added that 50% of students will come to schools one day and the remaining will attend the classes the next day.
Delay in Exams
Due to the prolonged closure of the educational institutes the minister has said that it is better to delay the exams for one or two months as the students have not completed their course work. The schools remain closed in the wake of preventing the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. So exams will not be conducted in haste but they will be commenced as there is no chance to promote the students. Moreover, a committee has been formed to make the educational plan for the province. Saeed Ghani further added that the exams will be held after the completion of the 60% syllabus. The students will be provided some extra time so that they study to appear in the annual exams. Similarly, besides the SSC and HSSC annual exams, the schedule of the exams of the schools, colleges, and universities will be also announced.
Proposed Schedule For Annual Exams
Earlier it had been declared that the Sindh government will conduct the annual exams of the SSC part I and II from 20th May 2021 and HSSC part I and II from 10th June 2021 respectively and the result of the exams will be announced by the end of August 2021, 90 days after the commencement of exams. In this regard, all the educational boards had been directed to work on the development of the model papers by considering the old paper pattern as approved by the inter-board committee of chairmen.
