All students of matric and intermediate classes who appeared for the final examination session of the 2021 academic year will be passed (no students will be failed), said the education minister, Shafqat Mahmood.

The Covid-19 hit the education sector badly and right from its arrival several changes have been done in the education system. However, the matric, as well as the intermediate levels of education, got disturbed to a large extent. Back in 2020, the examination session got disrupted and several changes were made. For the 2021 academic year, a lot of changes have done in the academic year. Let's have a look that how the 2021 education or examination session has affected.

Matric And Intermediate Examination Session 2021

At the beginning of the new academic session 2021 for matric as well as intermediate classes, the situation was quite normal. At first, it was decided that the academic year will only be completed with the final examination session. But, unfortunately, to compete with the 3rd wave of the Covid-19, the educational institutes underwent lockdown again. Because of this reason, students could not complete their syllabus. The situation was quite similar for both matric and intermediate students. The education ministries of all the provinces have decided to introduce the smart syllabus. Moreover, to complete the examination session it was also decided that the final examination session will be comprised of elective subjects only. According to the matric class date sheet 2021 it came to see that for the 9th and 10th classes, the exam session was comprised of elective subjects plus mathematics subject. However, It had been shown through the intermediate date sheet 2021 that for 11th and 12th classes only elective subjects were used to complete the examinations session.  


However, those students who were asking that they need more time to prepare for exams, the education ministry also came with a suitable solution for them. It was said to them that they can appear for the supplementary exams. However, we will not penalize students who are working hard on their studies. However, for the matric and the intermediate classes, the final exam sessions were conducted between July and August.  


Matric And Intermediate Result 2021

During scheduling the examination session, the education ministry had decided that the result for all the classes e.g. 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th will be announced within 03 months. It was an estimated schedule and it was decided that the final schedule for matric class result 2021 and intermediate class result 2021 will be shared once the result-making process or paper-checking process will be completed. All students were waiting for their final results and the education ministry comes with a new plan or decision regarding the final result session for both matric and intermediate classes.  

It was decided that the numbers of the compulsory subjects will be based on the average numbers of the elective subjects. Moreover, the education ministry has also decided that all students will be passed and those students who fail in any subject will be facilitated with the passing marks, 33% marks.


Next Strategy For matric And Intermediate Session

Through his recent tweet, Shafqat Mahmood has announced that he is very happy to announce that all the educational institutes will be operational again from September 16th, 2021.According to the new policy or strategy regarding the boards’ examinations session, it has been confirmed that the board exams will be commenced in May-June. However, the next academic year will start in August. The universities are allowed to make their own timetable for exams.     


Students who are worried and confused about the syllabus for the matric and the intermediate classes are also provided the complete idea that the education ministry has also announced the important decision regarding the syllabus. The education ministry has decided that the syllabus will be arranged until April or May. This will be a final syllabus and all the exams will be according to this syllabus, however, no smart syllabus will be introduced anymore.
