This is the first exams of Grade 10 at the regional/provincial level after the implementation of the eighth amendment to the Education Act 10 months ago. The Education Act has provisioned the SLC exams to be held in Grade 12 as the School Leaving Certificate Examination (SLCE). The SEE has been decentralized in the five development regions, with five different question sets. “The SEE should have been conducted in the seven provinces. But it could not happen due to lack of NEB bodies in the federal states,” said the OCE officials. “The name of the exams has been changed but it is equivalent to the past SLC exams.”
The Act has provisioned holding the Grade 8 exams by the district boards, Grade 10 exams by region/province boards and the Grade 12 exams by the national board.
It is the second time that the letter grading evaluation system was practiced in Grade 10. According to the MoE, the letter grading system will be gradually enforced in school level exams from Grade 1 to 12. The system is being implemented in Grades 9 and 11 from this year.
