Federal Minister for education and professional training Shafqat Mahmood has asked universities to conduct online exams this year if possible. Students have been demanding online exams as they studied online this year.
Shafqat Mahmood tweeted today from his official tweeter handler regarding the issue. The twee read as "Some university students are demanding that their exams should be online as they have been studying online. This is a decision for the universities to make but I have asked HEC to consult VCs and see if it is possible given special circumstances this year.
Universities should also assess whether they have the technical ability to conduct exams for ALL students. No one can be left behind. It is also necessary to ensure that the online exam system is not misused to get easy grades. Preparing good question papers/ assessment is important."
It is also pertinent to mention here that students are demanding online exams this year. Protest is being recorded by the students all over the country in different cities. Universities students' demand is on rise and now the Government is also taking this issue seriously.
