British council announces date for Cambridge exams across Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: The British Council confirmed on Friday that all Cambridge exams in Pakistan will resume on Monday, May 15th.

Exams both morning and evening shifts will be held as usual across the country, according to a statement issued by the British Council.

According to the statement, the decision was reached after carefully reviewing the circumstances in the country and keeping in mind their duty of care to safeguard the safety of the candidates, their parents, and staff members in the event of any unforeseen catastrophe.

Uzma Yousuf, Country Director, Pakistan at Cambridge University Press, addressed the Cambridge students, saying, “Cancelling the exams on May 10, 11, and 12 was a difficult decision for the British Council.” Your safety and well-being are prioritized, which is why this choice was made.

“Our team is constantly monitoring the situation and will keep you updated as more information becomes available.” We are entirely devoted to providing you with a safe and secure atmosphere in which to take your tests.”

After former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan was detained from the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday, violent confrontations erupted across Pakistan.

Protests were held in both distant and big cities as party activists became agitated following the arrest of their chairman, with Balochistan, Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Islamabad requesting the armed forces to maintain peace and order.

However, earlier today, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) blocked police from detaining PTI Chairman Imran Khan in all cases recorded across the country, including those that have not yet been announced, until Monday (May 15).

The court also awarded PTI chief protective protection in three terrorist cases filed against him in Lahore and barred police from detaining him in any case filed in Islamabad after May 9.

Imran was also granted protective bail in a case involving the death of Zille Shah, a PTI worker who was killed during a party rally in Lahore earlier this year, for 10 days against surety bonds of Rs50,000.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) granted former Prime Minister Imran Khan protective bail in the Al-Qadir Trust case, a day after the Supreme Court determined his incarceration was “illegal.”
