Earlier today, Federal Education Minister, Shafqat Mahmood, tweeted that O-level and IGCSE exams will start from 10 May. The CAIE exams were previously due to begin on May 15.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) CAIE, Christine Ozden, had personally requested the Education Minister to allow CAIE to start the May/June exam series from 10 May instead of 15 May.

Last year, CAIE had canceled May/June exam series worldwide because of the Coronavirus pandemic. However, this year, it canceled the May/June exam series in only 10 countries and decided to hold in-person exams in the remaining countries including Pakistan.
