Unregistered institutions can't take board exam

ISLAMABAD, May 9(Daily Times): Girls are showing much better results in examinations than boys but they need to be more athletically competitive, said Federal Education Minister Lt Gen (r) Javed Ashraf Qazi at the 22nd convocation and prize distribution ceremony of the Federal Government Margalla College for women here on Tuesday.

Qazi said Islamabad's public schools were producing better results compared to private ones. He said the government was trying to improve educational standards across Pakistan.

He said the government was registering all private schools and colleges to monitor their educational standards.
