Exams to be held biannually
Education ministers from the four provinces have decided that all students of matric and intermediate classes will be declared successful in view of the prevailing coronavirus situation, SAMAA TV reported on Monday.
The inter-provincial education ministers meeting was presided over by Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood.
The candidates who had failed would be passed after being awarded 33% concessional marks.
The meeting made the decision because the Covid-19 situation did not allow the government to hold supplementary examinations this year.

The biannual examination would be held in May and June and the new academic year would begin from the month of August.
