Shafqat Mehmood, Federal Education Minister wrote on his Twitter Account:
“After detailed discussions, Cambridge has agreed to reschedule ‘O’ level exams to after May 15. Details will be shared later by them,” Shafqat wrote on his official Twitter account.
However, he said that “A” and “As” level exams will take place as per the original timetable, following all standard operation procedures (SOPs).
“Wishing everyone success in the exams,” the federal minister said.
The exams are likely to be held after 15 May just after the Eid-ul-Fitr.
This rescheduling of exams was the need of the hour according to the bad situation of Covid-19 in Pakistan.
This was exactly what the students of ‘O Levels’ wanted so they can get some extra time for the preparation of exams.
