The leaders of the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) have strongly reacted to the examination policy announced by the federal government yesterday, saying that the decision would have far-reaching negative effects on students.

In a joint statement they said that the government decides educational policies in consultation with illiterate advisers and without taking educational experts onboard. The curriculum had already been reduced by 50 percent due to the global epidemic, followed by 50 percent multiple-choice questions (MCQs), 30 percent short questions, and 20 percent long questions. It aimed to cover all subjects and to prepare students for annual examinations.

After reducing the time and subjects, there is no room left to reduce the subjects and take exams only for specific subjects. This process would be just like last year’s decision to promote students to the next class without exams.

As stakeholders of colleges, we don’t support the government decision. SPLA leaders called on the prime minister to task an educational expert as education minister so that he could take a right decision. They urged PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Education Minister Saeed Ghani and Secretary Colleges Khalid Haider Shah to ensure that the provincial government maintains its principled and unique decisions as in the past. Contrary to this unwise decision of the federal government will create more problems for parents, students and teachers.
