Classes From 1 To 8 are Delayed Further For One Week
Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood told a news conference in Islamabad that Corona cases continue to rise, education has suffered greatly in the past eight months, and the ability to learn declines due to the closure of educational institutions.
Shafqat Mehmood said that since the exams for classes 9-12 are to be held there and it has been decided that no child will pass without an exam this year, therefore classes 9-12 will be held from January 18. Universities only open on February 1.
The start of classes 1 to 8 was delayed a week and will now open on February 1 instead of January 25. The education minister said the situation would be reconsidered next week and the NCOC meeting would further review the spread of the epidemic in cities.
