Shafqat Mehmood has announced matric, inter exams and students will not be able to celebrate days prior to Eid-ul-Adha.
Exams of classes ninth, matric, first, and second-year would take place across the country after July 10.
Several problems arose last year when the government had decided not to conduct exams, the minister said speaking on the floor of the National Assembly during the budget session.
“But now, we have decided that no grades will be awarded without exams,” the education minister said. It is “unfortunate” that some called for no exams even now in parliament, he said.
Sindh, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan, and all the other provinces had unanimously decided to conduct examinations.
