Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood has rubbished all rumours about the cancellation of exams.

The minister tweeted that the students of grade 9 and 11 will sit for their exams as per the scheduled timetable given by their respective boards.

Mahmood added that there was no truth to the rumours circulating regarding the cancellation of the exams.


Last month, Mahmood and Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Health Dr Faisal Sultan had announced that as per the suggestion of the National Command and Operation Centre, all board exams had been postponed till June 15.

“Exams of 9, 10, 11 and 12, which were supposed to begin from the end of May, have been delayed further,” the minister said. “No board exams will be held till mid-June (June 15).”

Mahmood added that another meeting of the NCOC will decide in the third week of May whether these exams will be postponed further or not.
