Examinations to be rescheduled after June 1

Examinations will be rescheduled after June 1, according to the Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mehmood. The decision was taken as Pakistan’s tally of confirmed coronavirus cases continues to rise. The minister said that the foreign institutions and domestic boards are bound to implement the government’s decisions and the examinations may be scheduled between June 1 and July 15, 2020 if the situation improves.

He further mentioned that he requested Cambridge to schedule exams for June/July, to save students from wasting time. Also, Higher Education Commission (HEC) officials have decided to delay university admissions due to the delay in examinations.
