This announcement came after the Islamabad High Court (IHC) has dismissed a petition demanding the suspension of in-person A and O level exams as non-maintainable.Chief Justice Athar Minallah announced the decision after hearing the petitioners’ lawyer’s arguments.

The court directed the petitioners to go to the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) to get their complaint heard.

“This court has already held that the decisions of the National Command and Operation Centre are binding and not justiciable by a judicial forum,” read the four-page long verdict.

“The grievance raised by the petitioners relates to the policy of the Federal Government in the context of dealing with the crisis of Covid-19. This court, therefore, is not the competent forum nor has the expertise to direct the respondents regarding what mode should be adopted relating to the assessment of students.”
