New Policy for Conducting Exams by Education Minister. Shafqat Mahmood, the Federal Minister of Education, has proposed a new framework for conducting exams based on the National Command Operation Center’s revised guidance (NCOC).
The decision was made at a meeting of the Interprovincial Education Ministers Conference (IPEMC), which also agreed that the board exams would take place after June 15. It was also determined to give the Matriculation and Intermediate exams top priority in order for applicants to apply for university admissions in a timely manner.
Minister Mehmood clarified in a tweet that the “NCOC has approved the holding of professional exams/tests etc.” Please submit an application to the Secretary, Federal Ministry of Education, Islamabad, detailing exam centers, student numbers, and SOPs to be observed. Permission will be granted as soon as all provisions are satisfactory.”
