Lahore High Court was informed by Higher Education Commission (HEC) h about the change in rules for students of O and A-Levels.
Cambridge students previously were required to get an equivalency certificate from the Inter-Board Committee Chairman (IBCC) of Education Boards.
A student, Romana Malik had challenged the requirement in a petition to challenge the conditions required to obtain one.
HEC was not attesting her degree as she had graduated from Punjab University and then completed her Masters from a private university.
Romana had not studied Islamiyat and Pakistan Studies during her O and A levels which resulted in a problem when the time came to retrieve her equivalency certificate.
Her attorney argued on her behalf that she was facing problems because of the certificate to receive a work permit in Dubai.
During the hearing, the HEC council then shared the notification that students are no longer needed to apply with the IBCC for O and A level equivalence for attestation of Master’s and Bachelor’s degree.
This decision comes as a huge relief to many Cambridge students who have faced the same problems while applying for their certificates.
