5th and 8th classes are the phase of huge academic importance for Pakistani students. The base of concepts and learning capability established at these classes are a way of academic success for the students in future. Punjab Education Commission started to conduct the examinations of 5th and 8th class students at district level to observe overall educational performance of students in Punjab. Punjab Education Commission prepares a report based on annual results of 5th Class and 8th class every year and determines the improvements.
But there is a flaw in PEC results report as a large number of students don’t even participate in PEC examinations and overall educational performance at district level can’t be judged. Taking PEC examinations by all 5th and 8th class students have not made any kind of compulsion by Government of Punjab. It is up to the choice of students and their institutes if they want to take part in PEC examinations or not. Schools should conduct their own examination. So, the inspection on improving weaknesses of students can be ensured more carefully.Read More: 2nd Year Date Sheet 2019 Will Be Announced Soon
