KARACHI: The Inter Board Presidents’ Committee has expressed reservations about a decision taken by education ministers to take exams only for electives, sources told Geo News

Shaukat Hayat presided over the IBC meeting, where preparations for the upcoming exams in Karachi are being discussed.

Sources said that the IBCC members questioned the logic of the new policy and asked how they would determine the grades of students on the basis of electives only of 10th grade.

The source said, “Smart students who excel in compulsory subjects will be affected by this approach.”

Now all the provinces will decide the action plan in their council meeting. It is likely that the Sindh Education Board will meet in the next two days.

On Wednesday, Federal Minister for Vocational Education Shafqat Mahmood said that the curriculum in middle and secondary schools has been reduced to such an extent that due to the spread of COVID-19, the closure of schools has reduced the educational loss of students.

Addressing a press conference after holding an Inter-Provincial Education Ministers Conference (IPEMC) , he said that the examinations in Grade 9 and 10 would be in only four selected subjects.

Similarly, Mahmood said, 11th and 12th class examinations will also be in selected subjects only, and other subjects will not be examined.

He added that the exams will begin after July 10.

He said that the examinations will be conducted first for grades 10 and 12, then for 9th and 11th classes.

It was also decided to provide gaps between each paper.
