All Board exams are cancelled. No confusion on that, said education minister

While millions of students were uncertain about the board examinations, the Minister for Federal Education Shafqat Mahmood clearly stated in a tweet that no board examinations will take place.

“All Board exams are canceled. No confusion on that”, he said in a tweet on Monday.

The minister further said that 80% of students have no issues, the rest are those who are repeaters or improvers and private students and some others whose issues need to be addressed and will be by Friday, he said in a tweet.

Every year, about four million students appear in the board examinations conducted by 29 boards across the country.

According to reports, the decision was made by all the education ministers of the country to cancel exams, which was later endorsed by the NCC headed by the prime minister.

The NCC had made the decision that 10th and 11th-grade students would be promoted on the basis of the previous year’s results, whereas 9th and 10th-grade students will be promoted without exams. As an alternative,9th and 11th-grade students will take merged exams next year, said the minister.

However, the students are uncertain about what their academic futures will look like after COVID-19
