On April 27, Pakistan decided to push CIE O' and A' Level exams, scheduled for May and June, to October and November. The decision left students across the country worried about their university admissions. Varsities across Pakistan start holding entry tests in June and July. By August, after the Cambridge board announces its results, admissions are usually confirmed. It won’t be the same this year, however, as A' Level students will be sitting their exams later in October and November. To ease the admissions process for Cambridge students this year, Karachi’s Habib University has promised to accommodate those who are appearing in the October and November exam session. “Students sitting exams later this year will join the university normally but with a lesser load,” said Mohsin Rizvi, HUs head of marketing and recruitment while speaking to SAMAA Digital. “Students who missed out on certain subjects in the first semester will be enrolled in the summer semester at no additional cost,” he explained. Rizvi added that Habib University will offer a “low credit hour programme” with less than 12 credit hours in the first semester so that students can manage their high school studies along with university courses. Students will start the second year with their peers. The university will conduct in-persion classes in the upcoming semesters if the Covid-19 situation stays under control. It will be mandatory for students to be vaccinated. “In any other case, classes will be conducted on a hybrid model,” Rizvi explained, adding that the varsity’s goal is to give everyone a full campus experience.
