The government of Sindh has taken the decision of promoting all the students from classes 1 to 12 without conducting any exams, which includes the ones who remained unsuccessful in all the subjects. Saeed Ghani, the provincial education minister said this in a press conference on Sunday.
He also said that the decision was made during the meeting of the steering committee in which it was decided that the students will be promoted, even the ones who failed in more than 40 percent of the subjects by awarding them passing marks.
He also said that no special exams for the improvement or of the failed students of SSC and HSC would be taken this year. He also added that the students who want to improve their subjects would be offered the opportunity to do so in the coming year.
Saeed Ghani also said that the students of grades 10 and 12 would be given promotion based on the results of their last years’ examinations with an extra 3 percent, whereas the students of classes 9 and 11 would be offered a promotion to the next classes without any marks.
