Education Department’s Action Plan to Address Poor Results in Punjab Schools
The School Education Department in Punjab is taking proactive steps to address the issue of poor performance in the matriculation board examination. With the results of the annual matric exams recently announced, the department is now collecting records of Secondary and high schools that have shown subpar results.
Consequences for Teachers and School Heads with Low Performance
As part of the action plan, the Education Department will hold teachers and school heads accountable for their performance. Those who have achieved less than 74% pass rate will face consequences. The final decision on the appropriate action will be made by the Secretary of Higher Education.
Opportunity for Matriculation Exam Retakes
Students who obtained low marks or failed in specific subjects during the matriculation examination will have a chance to retake the exam. The Education Board officials have set specific deadlines for online admission submission, allowing students ample time to register for the supplementary exams.
Inclusion of Fresh Candidates in Supplementary Exams
Under the new policy, fresh candidates will also be able to participate in the supplementary exams. They can submit their admission forms to the board office and apply online. The boards are making preparations to accommodate these additional candidates in the upcoming examinations.
