The Aga Khan University Examination Board (AKU-EB) on Tuesday announced a revised timetable for its Secondary School Certificate (Matric) and Higher Secondary School Certificate (Intermediate) examination session.
The theory papers across Pakistan will now begin on May 14 instead of May 11 due to the upcoming general elections scheduled for the day, according to a statement issued by the AKU-EB.
The May 2013 examination session will be conducted at 32 centres in 28 cities across Pakistan; students will attempt exams in more than 90 subjects.
The practical examinations for SSC have already been conducted as per schedule; however, those for HSSC will begin from May 7.
AKU-EB takes pride in its efforts to make sure that the May and September exam sessions, events, workshops and other activities are conducted strictly as scheduled unless something is completely beyond our control. We hope to continue this tradition for all future activities and services. Our initial exam timetable was published before the election dates were announced which caused a bit of confusion among our candidates,” said AKU-EB Associate Director Karima Kara.
The revised timetable has been sent to all affiliated schools and colleges and also posted on AKU-EB’s website.Dawn.
