In an unexpected move, the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa education authorities have announced a significant revision in the schedule for the 2024 matriculation, FA, and FSc examinations due to Upcoming Ramadan. The matriculation exams, initially slated for March 14, are now set to commence on April 18. Dates for the FA and FSc exams will be confirmed at a later stage.
This decision comes in the wake of numerous requests from students and parents across the province, advocating for a reschedule to avoid the overlap with the holy month of Ramadan and the upcoming general elections. The K-P Education Board, under the leadership of Chairman Ehsanullah Shah, has responded to these appeals with the revised schedule.
Mr. Shah, in a recent briefing, highlighted the board’s commitment to accommodating the needs of the student community while ensuring the smooth conduct of the examination process. He emphasized the unique challenges posed by the coinciding events of Ramazan and the general elections, acknowledging the potential stress on students and families.
The board assures that further details regarding the FA and FSc exams will be communicated in due course, allowing students ample time to prepare. This decision reflects the board’s sensitivity to the cultural and religious significance of Ramazan, as well as the civic importance of the elections.
Students and parents are advised to stay updated with the latest announcements from the K-P Education Board for any further changes or updates regarding the examination schedules.
