Pakistan’s mid-term exams will be held after June 15, Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood said on Tuesday.

The status of coronavirus is improving in the country due to vaccination and other measures taken by the government, the minister said, while speaking on the Geo News program “Capital Talk”.

“I have high hopes,” he said, about passing the exams successfully.

The minister said only A2 (A Level second year) exams are being written across the country, but there are many people who feel like they want to be given school exams.

Last month, when Pakistan witnessed the outbreak of the COVID-19 cases, Mehmood and Special Assistant to the Prime Minister of Health Dr Faisal Sultan announced that according to a proposal by the National Command and Operation Center, all board tests had been postponed to June 15. .

“The 9, 10, 11 and 12 exams, which were supposed to start in May, have been delayed,” the minister said at the time. “No board tests will be held until mid-June (June 15).”

Mehmood added that another NCOC meeting would decide on the third week of May whether the exams would be postponed.

“So if the tests are done after June 15, they can continue in July and even in August,” the minister explained.

Commenting on the Cambridge exams, Mehmood said the O Level exams will now be held in the October and November cycles and the same will be true for the A and AS Level exams.

“Those students who wish to enter the universities of Pakistan will be able to do so until January as the government will intervene in the universities in this regard,” the minister said.

However, he said A2 students should appear in the exams right now, as postponing this could lead to a year of dissolution.
