The Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education has announced that the examinations for Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary School Certificate courses will be held from July 10 in elective subjects only.
“No practical examinations shall be held. Revised date sheets are being finalised and will be uploaded on the website very soon,” the FBISE announced on Thursday.
On Wednesday, Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood announced relief for students amid complaints of the pandemic-induced learning losses by saying the 9th and 10th-grade board exams would be held for mathematics and elective subjects, including biology, computer science, physics and chemistry, only.
He, however, said 11th and 12th graders would take board exams for elective subjects. The FBISE also said that it was revising the marks improvement policy for compulsory subjects and would upload it on its official website soon.
