The Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) on Wednesday announced the new schedule for the matric and inter exams, previously postponed due to the ongoing heatwave.

Today, the examination board released a notification including the revised exam schedule.

The remaining exams of Class 10 will resume on May 28 as per the schedule.


BIEK’s Chairman Professor Nasim Ahmed Memon on Wednesday said that the exams of inter classes are scheduled to take place from June 1.

“Intermediate exams will be held from June 1 as it is not possible to conduct them from May 28,” said the chairman.

Memon said that the Board has sought permission from the education minister to extend the exams for four days. He added that 21 higher secondary schools were set up as a centre for the exams.

The chairman said that the Inter exams were to be held in the centres in the morning while matric exams were scheduled for the evening.
Speaking about the matric exams, the chairman said that they were postponed due to hot weather. “Postponed papers will be taken from May 28 in the same centres,” he added.

The BIEK chairman said that it was not possible to hold matric and intermediate exams in the same centres at the same time.

The BSEK had postponed the remaining papers of the secondary classes which were supposed to be held between May 21-27, in light of heatwave in Sindh.
