The School Education Department changed the admission policy by increasing new admissions by four percent instead of 10 percent this year, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday.

As per details, the total number of admissions across Punjab last year was one crore four lakh whereas in Lahore was 625000.

Moreover, the school's education department instructed the school administration to improve the results with the increasing number of admissions.

Action will be taken against school principals who do not meet the targets under the Punjab Employees Efficiency, Discipline, and Accountability (PEDA) Act.

The education board also aimed to improve the results of both matriculation and intermediate exams compared to the previous year.

They set a goal of maintaining an 85% attendance rate for students.

Furthermore, to maintain the physical activity of the students, all schools were required to hold a sports parade every Saturday.

Additionally, ramps were made mandatory in schools for disabled children.
