A summary to award grades to the students, who are appearing in matriculation and intermediate examinations under the Punjab Education Boards, has not been accepted yet by the Punjab cabinet committee, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday.

The summary was prepared years ago in 2019. During these three years, students' results were supposed to be shifted to a grading system instead of numbers.

As per the summary, in 2019 the students were supposed to get numbers, in 2020 students would be getting grades along with the numbers, but in 2021, matric and inter students who took exams were supposed to get grades only. 

The policy aimed to lower the percentage of the students by giving those grades instead of numbers. 

Now, this year too students will get numbers instead of grades as summery has been pending before the cabinet committee due to political unrest in the province.
