New ban on government schools

The education department has banned the purchase of question papers for annual papers in government schools from book depots.

Last year, it was revealed that question papers made from book depots in schools were used to test children. According to the Department of Education, there is a risk of children failing due to out-of-course question papers purchased from outside. Teachers will prepare question papers according to the syllabus taught.

The Education Department has said that the question papers for the annual examinations from 1st to 8th class will be prepared by the teachers themselves. Action will be taken against the concerned school heads for violating the orders.

On the other hand, the Punjab Examination Commission has released the date sheet for the Large Scale Assessment Test. There will be English paper on April 22, Urdu paper on April 23, Mathematics paper on April 25 and Science paper on April 26.
