The University of Karachi (KU) has postponed all its examinations that had been scheduled from 26 November onwards, a statement from its administration said.
“The University of Karachi has postponed the examinations scheduled from 26 November 2020, until further orders”, the notice read.
The announcement followed the federal government’s decision to close all the educational institutes across the country from 26 November to 24 December due to the second outbreak of COVID-19.
The information came hours after the University of Health Sciences Lahore deferred all its theory and practical examinations amid increasing coronavirus cases. A notification in this regard was issued late on Wednesday.
It said that all undergraduate and postgraduate theory and practical examinations scheduled from 26 November to 24 December have been postponed until further notice due to concerns about the fast-growing pandemic.
Earlier on Tuesday, the University of Punjab (PU) also postponed its examinations until further notice.
The second wave of coronavirus is rampant in the country. During the last twenty-four hours, Pakistan has reported 3,306 infections, 40 deaths, and 1,418 recoveries. With the current numbers, Pakistan’s total caseload stands at 386,198 with 7,843 deaths.
