Punjab councils offer four chances for students to improve their grades
Punjab Intermediate and Secondary Education Boards have amended the Grades Improvement Policy for Punjab students.
A meeting of the Punjab Councils Chairpersons Committee (PBCC) approved the policy which would benefit students if they needed to improve their grades by retaking an exam.
In this regard, a notification was also released by PBCC on March 31 that students will have four chances to improve their grades or grades.
As per the notification, the following changes have been made: “For the purpose of improving the grade(s), a candidate will be offered four examination opportunities in the current/current programs within three years of passing the SSC or HSSC exam, in the same subject/group in which he/she previously passed the exam provided that he/she did not obtain the higher qualification during this period. However, it will be the choice of a candidate if he stands for the improvement of marks in any subject/subjects or part I or II or as a whole on the condition that the candidate can avail these four chances mentioned above up to improvement in the actual result within three years.Once the candidate’s result improves, he or she will no longer be allowed to stand.
The next higher qualification signifies completion of HSSC or equivalent for applicants who appear to improve SSC results and this is an Associate of Arts (ADA) Degree/Associate of Science Degree competition (ADS)/Bachelor of Studies (BS) or equivalent for applicants appears to improve CSSS results.
Candidates who appear to be improving their overall “E” or “D” grade are allowed four chances within three years until they achieve an overall “C” grade (50%).
Candidates presenting themselves for further training after a gap of two years from the year of passing the SSC/HSSC will have to provide a certificate that they have not reached the higher diploma.
The score sheet and the certificate issued by the jury must reflect the number of attempts at which a candidate prevailed.
The other improvement rules currently in vogue in all Punjab councils will remain the same.
As already notified by the POCC, candidates who have participated in the SSC/HSSC (annual) exam 2020 and beyond can take advantage of these chances if they have not improved their results before. Candidates with overall “E” or “D” grades can take advantage of their chances accordingly.
