Exam boards to revise scheme for Matric
Lahore: In a major development all the nine Boards of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISEs) of Punjab are set to revise Scheme of Studies for Secondary School Certificate (Matriculation) Examinations under which 1,100 total marks for matriculation will be brought down to a total of 1050 marks, it is learnt.

Sources said on the pressing demands of other provinces where total marks for matriculation are 1,050, the issue will be placed in the upcoming meeting of Inter Boards Committee of Chairmen (IBCC) to be hosted by Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa next month.

Before 2012, Punjab too followed the same Scheme of Studies and had total 1050 marks at matriculation level. However, in 2012 the Punjab Boards Committee of Chairmen (PBCC) revised this Scheme of Studies and raised the total marks to 1100 unlike examination boards of Sindh, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan and Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJ&K) owing to which uniformity in total marks was lost at the level of BISEs across the country.

The sources privy to the developments said students from other provinces had to suffer a lot vis--vis equivalence issues and in case they had to seek admissions in Part-II (Class-X) in educational institutions of Punjab after passing Part-I (Class IX) from their respective provinces. They added the other provinces raised the issue on several occasions and demanded to ensure uniformity in this regard.

The sources further said the PBCC had now given the go ahead and the issue would be taken up at the level of IBCC, where all the BISEs of the country are represented for decisions related to policy making.

It is pertinent to mention here that Chairman of BISE Lahore Dr Muhammad Nasrullah Virk is Chairman of the national level forum for all the BISEs of the country, the IBCC.

As per the prevailing Scheme of Studies being followed by examination boards of Punjab, the subjects of Islamiyat Compulsory and Pakistan Studies carry 100 marks each unlike other provinces where these subjects carry 75 marks each.

Presently BISEs in Punjab offer Islamiyat Compulsory both in Part-I (Class IX) and Part-II (Class-X) with 50 marks in each part. The same is the case with the subject Pakistan Studies.

However, the BISEs in other provinces including AJ&K offer only one subject out of Islamiyat Compulsory and Pakistan Studies at Part-I and Part-II levels with 75 marks for each.

It is learnt once the proposed Scheme of Studies for BISEs of Punjab was approved by the IBCC the same would be followed by all the boards of the province from the year 2016 and both Islamiyat Compulsory and Pakistan Studies will carry total 150 marks (75 each) like other provinces. By doing so the total marks at Part-I (Class-IX) level will be 525 unlike prevailing 550 marks and thus the total marks for matriculation would be brought down to 1050 from existing 1100 total marks.
