Reasons for These New Curriculum Adjustments

The decision to revise the Matric Scheme of Studies for 9th and 10th class students, reflects a combined effort to enhance the quality and significance of education in Punjab. By reorganizing the matric syllabus 2024 for these two subjects; Islamiyat and Pakistan Studies, authorities aim to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of both subjects. By reducing the number of subjects students will be able to focus on these two compulsory subjects separately. The implementation of these changes will start from the academic session 2024-2025 onwards.
