The Punjab Boards Committee of Chairmen (PBCC) held a meeting on March 11, during which the committee made minor policy changes that will benefit students if they need to improve their marks by retaking an exam. According to a notification issued by the PBCC, students are given four examination opportunities to improve their marks/grades by reappearing in the current syllabus within the duration of three years. The students studying in classes ninth to 12 can take advantage of the policy and this policy is applicable to all 9 boards under PBCC.
It will be the choice of a candidate whether they appear for improvement of marks in any subject/subjects or part I or II or as a whole with the condition that the candidate can avail these four chances mentioned above till the improvement of the actual result within three years. Once the result of the candidate is improved, he/she will not be allowed to appear again.
The candidates appearing for improvement after a gap of two years from the year of the passing of SSC/HSSC will have to provide an affidavit that he/she has not attained the higher qualification.
The Result Sheet and Certificate issued by the Board will reflect the number of attempts a candidate has availed.
The candidates who had appeared in SSC/HSSC Examination (Annual) 2020 and onward can avail these chances if they have not improved their results previously. The candidates having overall ‘E’ or ‘D' grades may avail their chances accordingly.
No admission forms will be accepted after the due date which is April 15th, 2022 as per the Boards rules and policy. The date for admission forms of improvement exams has already passed.
2. Punjab Board Supplementary Examination:
Supply exams are scheduled after FSc part 2 results are out so students who’ve failed any exam may appear in them. The Federal board also recently announced to take exams in two terms, June and September, for both Matric and FSc.

It will be up to the candidate to improve either Part-I or Part-II or the parts together (composite). If the student fails to improve, their previous result will remain intact.
If any students fail to score minimum passing marks in one or more subjects, then it will be the last chance to pass the exam and get promoted to the next level.
