The Sindh High Court (SHC) will announce the decision pertaining to a plea seeking the postponement of Cambridge exams at 4pm today (Friday).
In a tweet, Muhammad Jibran Nasir, the counsel representing the students, said that the arguments have been completed in the case. According to Jibran, the dismissal of similar petitions by Lahore, Islamabad, and Karachi high courts is the “biggest hurdle” to the case. These decisions may have a “bearing on our case despite our merits, he added.
Jibran said: “The govt’s and Cambridge’s lawyers informed the court during our hearing that petitions in Peshawar and Islamabad have been dismissed. I personally cannot confirm the veracity of the news.”
Meanwhile, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) said it cannot interfere in the government’s domain as it reserved its decision on the plea seeking cancellation of A and O Level exams.
IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah said the case could be sent to the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) — a government body in charge of monitoring COVID trends.
