No online exam this year as it means ‘cheating’, says Minister Murad Raas
Talking to a private TV channel, Dr Murad Raas said that last year there were no exams and students were promoted without having any exams.
He also urged parents to play their due role and tell their children about the importance of the on-campus exams.
The minister said that students will not be promoted without taking exams this year.
It has already been announced that all public and private schools of Punjab will be opened on Monday, 7th June, 2021.
