All students of Sindh from classes one to 11 will be passed and promoted to the next grade, Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani said.
“Each and every student will be given an extra 3% marks and will be promoted to the next grade,” he said in a media briefing on Sunday.
The minister said that even those students who had failed their classes will be passed via grace marks. This way, no student in the province will be failed or left behind.
“The students of classes 10 and 12 will be passed on the basis of their previous board results,” Ghani explained. “There has been a confusion regarding how students of classes nine and 11 will be graded.
“As we don’t have records of their previous results, these students will be passed without any percentages or marks,” he revealed, adding that next year when these students will give their exams for grade 10 and 12, their results for that year and the previous year will be considered to be the same. This means that for both classes, next year’s result will be considered.
Ghani pointed that those students who wanted to reappear for their exams to improve their grades can do so next year. “This term no special examinations will take place,” he said.
The fee paid for these exams will be carried forward to next year.-UNS
