Commerce group to be introduced at SSC level
Lahore, Oct 6: The Punjab Education Department is introducing commerce group
as a separate group at par with the science, arts and computer science
group in the main stream of secondary school (Matric) level education
building a pyramid of commerce education from Matric to post graduation
Starting from Matric and ICom at Intermediate, BCom at
graduate and MCom, MBA at the postgraduate level in view of the
importance of the commerce education. The students opting commerce
group would proceed in the same discipline. The CCom and DCom studies
at the Intermediate level are separately available at the Polytechnic
At present there are three groups in Matric i.e science
group carrying Math, Physics, Chemistry and Biology with English and
other elective subjects; arts group carrying Math, General Science,
English, Pak Studies and other elective subjects and thirdly the
computer science group carrying Physics, Chemistry, Math, English, Pak
Studies and other elective subjects. The experts however, say that
computer science should be included in all the three groups. The
qualified teachers holding graduate and postgraduate degrees in
commerce should be posted in schools for commerce group.
admission in the schools will be granted in separate groups in the 9th
class according to the merit of each discipline. Thus the students will
have a vision to adopt their higher line of education in science, arts,
computer science and commerce from the beginning at the secondary
school level. This will help build solid ground of school education in
the respective field for admission in higher classes and
The Matric Tech is also a separate ambitious scheme envisaged a few
years ago but it does not materialise as envisioned by the experts in
technical education. According to these streams, the students will
learn technical skill in the schools along with their other subjects.
For that purpose special facilities like workshops, equipments, and
technologies with the help of TEVTA and teachers had to be posted in
the schools. This stream could lead to B Tech at the graduation level,
which is already being imparted at Poly Technical Institutes and
colleges of technologies where admission is available to simple
Intermediate. At present B Tech is offered by TEVTA and Punjab Board of
Technical Education recognised Polytechnic Institutes and colleges of
Technology, which are restricted.
However, by generalising the B
Tech group in the main stream of education and provision of necessary
facilities to school, the group can lead to strengthening of technical
education and help in producing the much needed technical manpower and
technicians who could serve as a back bone for progress. The nation
