SBA Paper Marking:
According to the new PEC policy, an examiner and a head examiner will be appointed to monitor the entire school-based assessment (SBA) process. After the successful conduction of the papers, marking centers will be allotted at the school markaz level.
Teachers from different schools working in the same school markaz will mark the papers. Teachers from the same school will not mark their own school’s SBA papers. The head examiner will shuffle the papers, so for example, School A papers will be marked by School B teachers.
PEC SBA Report Cards:
After the completion of papers report cards will be distributed to the successful candidates. Report cards distribution will be at school level. High scorer candidates will be awarded with medals.
