KARACHI: The Sindh government has cut short examination time across the province from three hours to two hours.
During a press conference in Karachi, Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani said this while announcing schedule for matric and intermediate examinations.
Examinations of classes from Grade I to VIII will commence from June 7. Exams of Grade IX and X will be held between July 1 and 15, while intermediate exams would be held between July 28 and Aug 16.
Whereas, the provincial government has also changed the pattern of examination paper as well.
“Half of the question paper will be based on multiple choice questions (MCQs), while rest of it will comprise subjective questions – 30 percent long questions and 20 percent short questions.
Saeed Ghani said that coronavirus tests of 7,000 college teachers were conducted and 233 of them were tested positive, while results of 1,506 tests were due.
To a query, he said the steering committee had been directed to present proposals regarding halting of use of unfair means during exams.
On this occasion, he also took a jibe at the federal government for mistreating Sindh and its residents. He said it was ridiculous of a prime minister to say about a province of his country that he did not accept it that province.
