The Punjab government has prepared recommendations regarding status of board exams including a proposal that no student will fail this year, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday.

According to details, the Punjab Government has recommended not to take any exam this year and all students shall be promoted as per their previous results.

An interesting proposal is about the cancellation of all board exams but no fees deposited for these exams will be refunded.

Moreover supplementary, composite, repeating students have been allocated in special cases which are seven percent of the total number of students and students can take exams next year.

Ninth grade students would be promoted to tenth grade and eleventh grade would be promoted to twelfth and twelfth grade result would be prepared in proportion to eleventh grade marks. Twelfth grade marks should be doubled and twelfth grade result should be prepared.

The recommendations will be presented at the inter-provincial meeting tomorrow and the final notification will be issued after the final decision of the federal government.
