If the Coronavirus situation continues to deteriorate, HEC could either schedule examinations after 15 July or conduct online examinations. The online examination will assess the students based on research papers, term papers, and assignments.

All these options are under consideration as the HEC has not taken any decision yet. Dr. Tariq Banuri has called a virtual meeting of the VCs of all universities across the country to deliberate on these options before approaching the government.

  • It would be much better if online examinations action is conducted rather than taking exam physically

    • yeah it would be if it is beneficial. Actually in reality its useless bec. of pre requisites etc especially in semester system

  • HEC decided to conduct exam but why they do this.Because they can not know the learning situation at home or so called online classes.During classes students faced a lot of difficulties. Teachers sending a materials at online without any instruction or understanding. And in this situation why they open universities for the purpose of exam.please don’t do this.kya hum online parhna ka bd is qabil ha ka universities ma ja kr papers da saka.This is totally unjust for students. I request HEC chairman or university’s authorities please don’t conduct exam after May 31 .Give a time for learning especially in university environment. Please

  • I think the education system physically should not reopen because we can’t take any single risk on life. As the situation the Pakistan and world are facing now are not in favor of reopen universitiesor any educational institutions and any any kind of physical bussiness . The teaching method of online CLASS IS better in our favor now. THANK YOU.

  • It is useless to conduct online exams because this way is not effective. As far as I believe people who don’t want to study are in favour of online examinations because they want to take undue advantage of it. I am sorry to say this. Online exams are useless because 99% people correspond with each other when online quizes are conducted by universities. Obviously will do the same in their papers too. This doesn’t produce a productive resource in the market.
    I request HEC to reopen universities incase situation is in control and ask institutions to conduct physical classes for atleast two weeks. I also request teachers to be lenient too.
    When all sectors are reopened so why universities are closed? As university students are not kids…. They know how to fight against this war….
    Moreover, if mothers who are students also face lots of problems at home.

  • we are not prepared for the exams…it’s big issue but more than that mostly students face network problem during quiz, assignments and classes also so how we take the risk of online exams?

  • If the lives of schools and colleges level students is important then what about the university students? HEC must cancel the university exams also. Agree?
