The students in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will now take their class nine and matric examinations together from 2021 onwards. 

The Elementary and Secondary Education Department issued a notification on Friday. The assessments for class eight students have been replaced by formal board examinations.

There will be no separate board examination for class nine students in the current session 2019-2020, according to the notification.

    An incapable authority has taken a pathetic decision during an ongoing session.Can the administration please explain the sudden urge of taking class 8th board with immediate effect?however it would have been more appropriate to announce it this year and provide proper curriculum and paper patterns to all schools and to implement it in the session 2020-2021..one can clearly feel the incompetency of the authority as our kpk education comission wants to prove itself a macho man regardless of the troubles that students and parents and schools are going to face..shame on our education minister for such negligence and poor decisions..a dictatorship of board authorities will lead to a futile exam of class 8th this year as once it was done for class 5th in session 2016-17..may Allah give our board authorities sense to see into the matter and take proper decision..and please stop trying to be different from other provinces as rolling stone gathers no moss.
