Karachi, April 24 (PR): Aga Khan University Examination Board announced the revised timetable for its Secondary Schools Certificate (Matric) and Higher Secondary School Certificate (Intermediate) examination session. The theory papers across Pakistan will now begin on May 14 instead of May 11 due to the election.
“AKU-EB takes pride in its efforts to make sure that the May and September exam sessions, events, workshops and other activities are conducted strictly as scheduled unless something is completely beyond our control. We hope to continue this tradition for all future activities and services. Our initial exam timetable was published before the election dates were announced which caused a bit of confusion among our candidates,” said Karima Kara, Associate Director, AKU-EB.
AKU-EB’s May 2013 Examination session will be conducted at 32 centres in 28 cities across Pakistan; students will attempt exams in more than 90 subjects. The practical examinations for SSC have already been conducted as per schedule; however, those for HSSC will begin from May 7.
“The number of our candidates is swiftly growing so as the number of exam centres and cities we cover. We aim to serve as many students as we can especially in areas where quality education is currently inaccessible. We have a mission to improve the quality of education in Pakistan and we want to bring the whole nation along,” added Ms Kara.
The revised timetable has been sent to all affiliated schools and colleges and also posted on AKU-EB’s website as a downloadable file: http://examinationboard.aku.edu/examinationservices/examinationtimetable
