Matric exams postponed in Karachi for Youm-e-Takbeer holiday

The provincial authorities have postponed the matriculation exams scheduled for Tuesday in Karachi as the nation observes a Youm-e-Takbeer holiday.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif declared the holiday to commemorate the historic day when Pakistan successfully conducted nuclear tests in Chaghai in 1998.

Sindh Universities and Boards Minister Mohammad Ali Malkani announced that the exams for grades IX and X will not take place in Karachi on Tuesday due to the holiday. He assured that a new date for the postponed exams will be announced soon.

Previously, the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) had revised the matric exam schedule due to a severe heatwave. The remaining exams, initially set for May 21-27, were postponed for the safety of the students.

Additionally, the University of Karachi has also declared a holiday for Tuesday, deferring the exams that were to be held on that day.

In a statement, PM Shehbaz emphasized that Youm-e-Takbeer serves as a reminder of national unity and the unwavering commitment to the country’s defense. He highlighted the importance of this day in reinforcing the resolve to protect the nation against any external pressures.

“Youm-e-Takbeer reminds political and defense forces to unite under the green crescent flag to strengthen the defense of this country,” the Prime Minister stated.
