There has been news circulating on social media for the last few days that the Higher Education Commission has allowed the promotion of university students without examinations.

It also said that the commission had decided to stop all online classes. The HEC has, however, declared the news fake.

In a tweet on Saturday, the commission said, “HEC is addressing students’ concerns regarding online classes and exams but promoting students without examination is out of [the] question.”

Earlier this week, students from across the country gathered outside the HEC’s office in Islamabad, demanding their full semester fee be waived.

They claimed that the online classes that the varsities conduct only include daily lectures and recordings for which students use their own resources such as WiFi and mobile internet.

They have demanded that they be promoted to the next semester without examinations and their fees reduced by 50%.

    They should promote. Promoting in one semester on the behalf of previous SGPA should not be a very big deal for HEC. They’re just being stubborn.

    all student are not equal .
    Many are lived in rural areas about 70 to 85%
    Many are not Laptop and Money to take onlines classes .
    He can not be afford the costly internet packages .
    Internet are weak in the rural area.
    Due to weak internet if the student missed the online examination then there is not mistake the students .
    The teacher fails Many student
    So the future of the Manystudent are destroyed

    Asslam-o-Alaikum
    OK, it’s fine HEC decided nor promote any student without education. But HEC conduct exams before the announced date because many departments completed online classes last month (May) and now final smester students wait for their degree because for them just exams are left only. Why not they free 8th semester? If they free them they will become able to apply for jobs because many government jobs are upcoming and demand graduation. It’s my request to HEC kindly make some strategy for last smester students and give them transcripts, so that they start their professional career.
    Hope you will reconsider your decision and let down your ego. Sorry for this. Thank you!
