KARACHI - Aga Khan University Examination Board on Tuesday announced its revised timetable for Secondary Schools Certificate (Matric) and Higher Secondary School Certificate (Intermediate) examination session. Theory papers across Pakistan would now begin on May 14 instead of May 11 due to the election.

“AKU-EB takes pride in its efforts to make sure that the May and September exam sessions, events, workshops and other activities are conducted strictly as scheduled unless something is completely beyond our control. We hope to continue this tradition for all future activities and services. Our initial exam timetable was published before the election dates were announced which caused a bit of confusion among our candidates,” said Karima Kara, Associate Director, AKU-EB.  

AKU-EB’s May 2013 Examination session will be conducted at 32 centres in 28 cities across Pakistan; students will attempt exams in more than 90 subjects. Practical examinations for SSC have already been conducted as per schedule; however, those for HSSC will begin from May 7.  “The number of our candidates is swiftly growing so as the number of exam centres and cities we cover. We aim to serve as many students as we can,” added Kara.
