ISLAMABAD: Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood on Sunday announced important decisions taken during a meeting of the health and education ministers of all provinces. The minister took to Twitter to share the decisions taken during a meeting of the health and education ministers of all four provinces. He announced decisions taken during the special meeting with consensus. The minister said classes of grades 9-12 will begin in affected districts in a staggered manner so students can prepare for their upcoming board exams.
“A special meeting of Health and Education Ministers of all provinces and AJK/GB was held today. The following decisions were taken with complete consensus. 1) Classes 9 to 12 would commence in affected districts in a
staggered manner to allow students to prepare for Board exams,” he tweeted. As the minister had announced earlier, exams for classes 9-12 will take place according to the new dates announced by boards. He said this will not begin
before the fourth week of May. Mehmood said Cambridge had announced it will not give teacher assessment
grades this year hence those not appearing for the exams this semester can do so in October and November.
“Meeting was also informed that Cambridge has decided not to give teacher assessed grades this year therefore those not taking exams will take them in the next cycle Oct/Nov. Cambridge also assured that all SOPs will be strictly followed,” he tweeted.
