Sindh Education and Labour Minister Saeed Ghani has said that after promoting children from classes one to eight they will also do the same for the students of classes nine, 10, 11 and 12, reports Dawn News.
The education minister said that the students of classes nine, 10, 11 and 12 would also be promoted without exams to the next level and their marks would be increased by three per cent under a formula system.
“It has been agreed in the National Curriculum Council meeting of the Federal Minister of Education Shafqat Mahmood and the ministers of education of other provinces that in the present circumstances, it is not possible to conduct examinations. However, to improve the position of the students and if they are also willing, exams can also be taken,” he said.
If one’s marks in the ninth class is 60 per cent, then he or she will now be counted as 63 per cent in the matriculation result making him or her able to get admission to the 11th in the same proportion. Similarly, one’s success rate in the 11th will be calculated by adding three per cent to it.
