Educational boards to introduce new grading system
The passing score for all boards would be boosted from 33% to 40% under the new scheme. The GPA system will be implemented, and the marks sheet will no longer include the student’s grades. The redesigned “Result Card” certification will substitute the students’ previous Marks Sheet.
The new grading system will be adopted throughout the country. In the matric and intermediate, the new scheme will gradually replace the old system over the following three years.
The present enrollment and intermediate mark sheets will be taken down beginning this year, with the scores of grades 9 and 11. On Monday, the new result card scheme will be authorized. The IBCC conference, which is anticipated to be conducted in Karachi, would include the chairmen of school boards from around the nation.
