Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood has a piece of advice for Pakistani students!
Its been for months now that the students have been targeting the federal minister in Twitter trends try to get physical exams canceled all across the country.
Since the announcement of the examination schedule, students have repeatedly demanded the cancellation of exams owing to the lockdown and pandemic.
While many students complaining about the short duration to complete the course work education have been protesting in various cities.
While speaking on Dawn News program Live with Adil Shahzeb about the ongoing physical exams and the issue of Pakistani students studying in China, Federal Minister said that exams have already started in Sindh and will also commence in Punjab from Friday so there is no possibility of papers being postponed or canceled.
“I would advise the students to stop spending time on Twitter to make trends and that it is better to focus on their education. There is still time left for exam preparation,” he said.
Talking about the issue of Pakistani students in China, the minister said that he was aware of the problems and will take up the matter again with the Chinese government.
Pakistani students studying in Chinese universities are still waiting to go back and resume in-person learning.
“Every country is dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in its own way. We all know that China is a big country and there is a risk of the virus spreading there, so the Chinese government enforced the strictest restrictions and imposed a lockdown, he said.
“The pandemic situation has improved in China and elsewhere so I hope that this issue will be resolved soon,” he said.
