Ministry exempts Form B for admissions

APP June 13, 2024



The Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training on Wednesday abolished the requirement of Form B for admission to federal government schools.
“It has come to our attention that the previous requirement of producing Form B as a condition for admission in federal government schools has inadvertently restricted access to education for underprivileged children,” the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
“This practice has disproportionately affected vulnerable populations, including undocumented children,” it added.
“In light of this, we have decided to correct this policy and remove the requirement of Form B as a prerequisite for admission. Effective immediately, all children living in Islamabad, regardless of their documentation status, will be eligible for enrollment in government schools,” the ministry said.
