Karachi Board Denies Fake Matric Exam Schedule Circulating on Social Media


The Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) may announce a new timetable for matric exams following the decision by provincial authorities to delay the exams.

BSEK exam controller Khalid Ehsan stated that the Universities and Boards Department postponed intermediate and matric group exams from May 21 to May 27 to ensure students’ safety during the intense heatwave. He clarified that the reschedule circulating on social media and chat groups after the postponement of papers is inaccurate and not the official timetable. Ehsan assured that the Board would release a new schedule for the remaining matriculation exams as soon as possible.

It is important to note that two papers for the 10th and 9th classes are still pending. Previously, the Universities and Boards Department had rescheduled exams under the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK), which were initially set to begin on May 22.

Despite the deferral of exams until May 27 due to heatwave concerns, Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz confirmed on Monday that Karachi is not expected to experience a heatwave in the upcoming week.
