HEC, universities heads agree on providing A-level students admissions based on provisional results

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) after consultations with the Covid-19 Oversight Committee representing Vice Chancellor from each province and region, and heads of a few private sector universities have agreed to provide provisional admission to A2 students. Students whose exams have been postponed to October 2021 will be granted admission in the Fall 2021 semester so that they would not waste a year.

On the direction of the Federal Minister for Education Mr. Shafqat Mehmood, a virtual consultative meeting was held on Friday to address the reservations expressed by students and parents in wake of the Government’s decision to put off examinations till June 15 due to surge in the third wave of COVID-19 in the country.

Addressing the meeting, Executive Director HEC Dr. Shaista Sohail said, “we want to assure the parents and students that HEC, and the universities are committed to ensure student-centric approach without compromising the interest of universities and teaching and learning quality”.
