On Sunday, the government of Punjab has issued the new schedule for the registration and admissions for Class XI on the basis of the result of the Matriculation Supplementary Examination 2020.
The Punjab Boards Committee of Chairmen (PBCC) has issued the reviewed schedule for online enrollment/admission of candidates by all the Boards of Intermediate & Secondary Education (BISEs) for Class XI for the Year 2020-22.
According to the reports, candidates can be admitted to the institutions without a late fee till January 29th and with a penalty of Rs.500 till February 04th, 2021.
On the other hand, the education authorities are dealing with the changing situation due to the pandemic that has badly affected the academic calendar.
On January 4th, the federal government had announced the phased recommencement of in-person learning in around 300,000 educational institutions countrywide from January 18th.
It, though, slightly changed the plan on the advice of the health officials on Friday.
Shafqat Mehmood Federal Education Minister announced that students of classes 9-12 would restart education in-person on Jan 18th, whereas those in the nursery to class 8 would return to school on 1st of February, instead of January 25, maintaining less than 50% attendance.
He said there was no change in the plan of reopening of the countrywide universities and colleges on February 1st.
The minister said no students would be promoted without examinations in the existing year, and hence, the decision to continue classes from 9 to 12 was made.
Also, the board exams have already been postponed to May/June.
