ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mehmood said Wednesday students of matric and ninth across the country would be assessed on the basis of elective subjects and math this year.
The minister, explaining the decision during a press conference in Islamabad, said only four exams, including math for ninth and matric, will be conducted — biology, computer science, physics, and chemistry.

No student would be awarded grades without attempting examinations this year, the education minister stressed, he said, adding: “If we do not conduct the exams, then students will not even employ minimum efforts to study.”

Mehmood’s press conference came after he chaired a meeting of provincial education ministers and officials from the education departments, according to the education ministry.
