The KU should learn from the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi how to conduct exams with the compliance of Covid-19 SOPs. They demanded from Education Minister Syed Sardar Ali Shah and Secretary College Education Khalid Haider Shah to take notice and provide masks, sanitizers, and thermal guns at the examination centers for the safety of thousands of students.
