The British Council is allowed by the government to hold special O Level exams.

Shafqat Mahmood went on to say that the "change will enable O level students to begin A level or FA/Fsc in September."

“This type of exam in July is unprecedented, and I am grateful to Cambridge for organising it,” he added.

In another tweet, the education minister stated that the Covid-19 pandemic has caused enormous challenges in all aspects of life, particularly schooling.

“We have made difficult decisions to assure the continuation of education/learning. Every decision has advantages and disadvantages, but the interest/welfare of students is always important for us,” the ministry tweeted.

It should be noted that the federal government said on May 24 that all classes would be subjected to examinations, and that no student would be advanced to the next class unless examinations were completed this year.

The decision was made during the Inter-Provincial Education Ministers Conference (IPEMC), which was attended by all provincial education ministers.

The meeting resolved that Board exams would begin after June 20.
