August 2011 Girls Ed Pakistan Project update

Dear Girls Education International supporters,

Thank you for helping to give 30 girls in Laphi and Sar Kalan books, uniforms, and transportation to attend school at Government Secondary School Buchal Kalan, district Chakwal, Pakistan!    

March is the month of annual exams in Pakistan and students in grades 1 through 10 usually take their exams.  Results are then reported, and the students are promoted to the next grade if they pass.  All 30 of the girls we support took their exams and ALL OF THEM PASSED THEIR EXAMS AND HAVE BEEN PROMOTED TO THE NEXT GRADE.  

TWO OF OUR GIRLS PLACED FIRST in their respective classes in the annual exams.  I hope you read our May project report and our story about Zofishan, one of the girls our program is supporting.  I am pleased to tell you that Zofishan placed 1st in her 6th grade class and has been promoted to 7th grade.  Another of our girls, Adila, also placed first in her 8th grade class.  Adila also took the required external exam, conducted by the district education department and we are anxiously awaiting her results.   

Understanding the Examination System in Pakistan: I have learned a lot about the examination system in Pakistan over the past year.  For grades 6 and 7, the school holds internal exams and promotes students to the next grade.  However, additional external examinations are held by the district examination department for grade 8 and the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education for grades 9 through 12. Internal exams usually start on March 1st each year and end by March 20th.  The relevant authority decides the dates for external exams and announces the results at its own convenience.

Thank you so much for continuing to provide support to our girls in Pakistan and giving them this opportunity to continue their education!
