160,000 candidates appeared in the JEST test, conducted by the Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Sukkur, in collaboration with the provincial government, however, only 0.78 percent of candidates passed the test.

Consequently, a proposal has been sent to the Sindh cabinet, according to which it is proposed that 45 percent passing mark per subject rule must be abolished for all the candidates and the overall passing marks for female candidates should be lowered to 40 percent.

The exemption has not been proposed for the male candidates whose passing marks per subject shall remain 55 percent.

500,000 applications were received for the recruitment test for 46,500 vacancies of primary school teachers (PSTs) and junior elementary school teachers (JEST).
