In a fourth meeting between Higher Education Commission (HEC) and the Vice Chancellors since the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, HEC directed universities to formulate and publicly announce transparent policies on how they will conduct examinations at the end of ongoing semester.
The meeting further decided that all universities will announce their policies on examinations and admissions within one week. All attempts shall be made to protect the academic calendar besides addressing the problems being faced by graduating students. HEC will also set up an appellate system to follow-up on student complaints.
Vice Chancellor’s meeting was convened by HEC to develop consensus on examinations policy, admissions policy, academic quality, and the academic calendar during the virus pandemic.
