Punjab is Replacing Marks With a Grading System for Matric & Intermediate

The Punjab government has approved to the replace the marks system with a grading system for Matric and Intermediate examinations. The change has been made in a bid to bring the current education system at par with O and A Levels.

The suggestion was proposed by the Inter Board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC) which got the approval from Chief Minister Usman Buzdar.

This may prove to be a stepping stone to eliminate the cramming system and promote analytical abilities among students.

From now on, there will be no race among students to achieve maximum marks as they will get A+, A, B, C, and D grades, respectively based on their performances in the examination.

The provincial education department was hopeful that the initiative will improve the education system and will put it on track to meet the international standards.

In the first stage, the result of only 9th class will be announced as per the grading system this year. Based on success rate, it would be applied to upper classes from next year, the government said.

An official from the education department said the government was taking serious steps to make the education system analytical and cheating-proof to bring it at par with O & A Levels. However, the IBCC Chairman Dr. Muhammad Ismail said that he is yet to receive the summary after approval.

  • I really appreciate the step taken by government in the education department such a good step taken by government for the students and also it may help our creepy education system to improve

  • The difference in O/A levels isn’t the study material. It’s the technical and concept based questions that they give on exams which absolutely destroy a student if he crams the topics. This forces students to actually understand the topics and not cram them.

    Matric and FSc situation will only improve if they massively improve the quality of papers they give.

    • Laanat qaboool karen … apnay bachon ka berra gharaq kia aur abb dooosron kay bachon ko zaleel karnay ka mansooba bana k bethi hain… kia insaniat nahi hai?

    • what a shame because of you people matric and fsc kids suffer you just put them in a number race and they keep competing with each other.

  • This is totally copy cat situation did they see the course of levels changing in grades doesn’t makes any difference they should change the material. So out dated poor kids studying the same stuff what their parents and their parents studied.

  • Plz don’t make such silly practices as education is a very sensitive matter 90% parents are not interested in o level and A level as it has no scope in pakistan most of the parents want their children to go to medical and engineering the best way is that each child should get question paper of his or her name like eata the same question but with alternate position

  • yes i am satisfy its to good yar now their will no race among students and they will study conceptual

  • Assalamualaikum Sir. Agr ye hota he to mbbs ka marit kese bane ga. Bcz wahan to points ka b difference hota he Lekin ye to seedha grade he bataen ge. To aggregate kese bane ga ?

  • Is this grading system would applied to the 9th class result 2019

  • yar grading system hona cahiya asa kisi banda ka science subjects main a plus hota ha or arts main b or 1 banda ka arts main a plus or science main b osa admission mil jata ha lakin jis ka science main zyada hoon osa nhi milta

  • As a student my self waiting for my results of 9th class. I was told for a whole year to get 455+ marks in 9th and try to achieve 1000+ marks in matric over all. With this new change a person who gets 450 marks will have A grade and the person who gets 455 marks will have A* grade. I just think it’s not fair to implement such a change without any heads up although it does helps in lowering the race of marks between people
