Exams postponed in Punjab after paper leak

LAHORE, May 29(Daily Times): The Education Department on Monday postponed the ongoing primary (Class-V) and upcoming middle standard (Class-VIII) examinations following reports regarding the leakage of question papers in several districts of the Punjab, special secretary (schools) Capt (r) Zahid Saeed said. He said the department had taken serious notice of the news of leakage of question papers of Class-V examinations and had therefore postponed the exams. He said an inquiry had also been ordered into the matter. He said primary examinations were not a criterion for the promotion to the next grade. The primary exams were started on May 25.

The teachers announced to boycott the exams on account of their protest against the government over several issues. They disrupted the exams in several parts of the province. According to the department on the first day over 50,000 students out of 1.2 million were failed to take their exams. He said the department had also postponed the class-VIII examinations, which were scheduled for June 2. He said dates for the exams would be notified soon.
