Schools’ union opposes decision to pass, promote all students

ISLAMABAD: The association of private schools has opposed the decision to pass and promote all students of matriculation and intermediate classes, terming it a “joke” with the deserving students.

In a statement, All Pakistan Private Schools Federation President Kashif Mirza also deplored the decision to commence the academic session from August, instead of March, every year.

The statement was issued in response to a meeting of the Inter-Provincial Education Ministers Conference held on Monday which decided to declare as pass all students and award 33 percent marks, the minimum requirement to clear a board test, to them if they fail in any subject.

Presided over by Minister for Education Shafqat Mahmood, the meeting had decided since students had faced difficulties in preparing for their assessments during the health crisis, they should be given concession.
