Punjab’s Higher Education Department (HED) has decided to make another alteration to the intermediate test guidelines to facilitate private students in the province.

Private students will now be eligible to sit at the FSc yearly examinations, according to reports, with the latest modification due to take effect in the academic year 2023.

However, the students will be required to submit certificates to confirm their appearance in practical exams before taking the annual exams.


The students will be able to obtain these certificates from any college affiliated with any of the eight boards of secondary and intermediate education.

This change is undoubtedly great news for private candidates who wanted to enroll in sciences. Previously, private students were bound to choose between humanities and commerce.
