Islamabad: According to the government’s final decision on the examination timetable, it is reported that students in grades 10 and 12 will take the matrix test and the intermediate test first.
The education ministers of all the provinces, including Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, agreed that no student, including those of classes 9 and 11, will be promoted without exams this year like last year due to the prevalent coronavirus pandemic.
This time, the order of examinations has been changed keeping in view that the students of classes 10 and 12 have to get admission to colleges or universities.
Therefore, the 9th and 11th grade exams will be held later.
The final dates for the exam are as follows:
The 10th grade exam will start on June 19.
Examinations for Year 12 will begin on July 6.
The 9th grade exam will start on July 20.
The Grade 11 exams will start on August 5.
There will be no matriculation and intermediate practicals, 50% marks in practicals will be given to all students while the remaining 50% marks will be given in reference to the average of the marks of part-second theory.
The publication reported that no student of matric and intermediate Part II will get as many marks in Part II.
The same number of marks will be given in Esco Part-I. However, it cannot be decided this year to give a 3% extra score to the intermediate students who did not participate in the first part of the matrix and the second part last year.
