Pakistan will see the start of the Single National Curriculum (SNC) in the next academic year, which is due to begin in August 2021, the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training announced on Wednesday.
According to the ministry, under the directives of Federal Minister for Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mehmood, the new year “would start now in August 2021 due to extension in examination dates to be held in May/June and also prolonged school closures in the academic year of 2020”.
The SNC has been developed in consultation with area governments, said the ministry, adding that students of pre-1 to grade 5 will follow it.
It will come into effect across all public and private schools in the next academic year.
