This year’s Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Junior Dakhil Certificate (JDC) examinations will start on Nov 1.
The schedule was finalised on Monday at a meeting presided over by the secretary to primary and mass education ministry.
“The exams will be held between Nov 1 and 17. Other issues over the exams remain the same as last year,” Secretary Humayun Khalid told media.
The primary and mass education ministry will administer the exams from this year after the government upgraded primary education from grade V to grade VII.
The eight education boards and the madrasa board will cooperate with the ministry for holding the tests.
