The same kind of syllabus will be studied in all educational institutes till 2008 while the O- and A-Level system will be eliminated in 2010. According to well-placed sources, the syllabus for 27 subjects from class one to the intermediate level has been sent to all the provinces and will be effective from 2008.

The education ministry has also decided to impose a common study system in the country by abolishing different types of education systems like the O- and A-Levels.

Federal Education Minister Javed Ashraf Qazi declared the new education system as one of the best curriculums in the world while education experts, students and teachers hope it will improve the education standards of the country. online
