Ali added that examinations could also be conducted in accordance with the new schedule and precautionary measures against COVID-19.

The chairman demanded to hold awareness sessions for the parents of the students besides conducting training sessions regarding the SOPs from June 1 to June 13.

He also said that all education institutions should be reopened from June 15.

On May 7, Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood had announced the cancellation of all board exams across the country as part of measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Speaking after the National Coordination Committee (NCC) meeting in Islamabad, he said that it has been agreed in the meeting that all educational institutions across the country will remain closed till July 15.

“All board exams have been cancelled and students of class 9th, 10th, 11, and 12 will be promoted for the next grade on the basis of results obtained in the previous class,” he added.

Giving an example, he said a student can get admission in a university on the basis of his 11th class result.

He said the decision has been taken on the consensus of all provinces and added that students will be able to enrol in the next class as soon as the school reopens.

It is pertinent to mention here that on March 13, amid rising cases of a novel coronavirus in the country, the federal cabinet announced the closure of all the public and private educational institutes across Pakistan.
